The CCTV footage shows one missile hitting the shopping mall and another striking its garage, Polish Radio's polskieradio24.pl website said on Wednesday, citing Ukraine’s Nastoyascheye Vremya TV channel and the state-run news agency Ukrinform.
Nastoyascheye Vremya reported on the Telegram social messaging app: “CCTV footage from Kremenchuk disproves the claims of Russia’s Defence Ministry. Moscow says that the explosion in the shopping centre … wasn’t caused by a Russian rocket, but by a blast in a nearby depot of Western ammunition."
Monday’s attack drew international condemnation. It killed at least 18 people, with dozens considered missing, according to the Reuters news agency.
According to Nastoyascheye Vremya, the death toll reached 25, while the office of President Volodymyr Zelensky on Tuesday put the figure at “more than 20.”
Zelensky himself said the attack had been “deliberate,” adding that “the Russian killers … wanted to kill so many people,” polskieradio24.pl reported.
Wednesday is day 126 of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
