CCTV footage debunks Russian explanations of Kremenchuk mall strike - media

Surveillance footage from a Kremenchuk park, obtained and studied by journalists, refutes a claim of the Russian Defense Ministry that the Amstor shopping mall, where more than 20 were killed, allegedly exploded due to a detonation in a nearby Western ammunition depot, not from a Russian missile strike.

The video was analyzed by RFE/RL’s Current Time, Ukrinform reports.

"Surveillance footage in Kremenchuk refutes a statement by Russia's Defense Ministry. Moscow claims that the shopping center, where at least 25 were killed, allegedly exploded not from a Russian missile that hit it, but from a detonation in a Western ammunition depot," the statement said.

Instead, the recordings show explosions caused by two incoming missiles: the first hits the Amstor mall, and the second hits the plant's hangar.
