Terror of civilians shouldnʼt be ignored by world - Shmyhal

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal thanked the Ukrainian Air Defence Forces, which are doing their job professionally and perfectly.

He wrote about it on Telegram, according to Ukrinform.

"Two massive air attacks on the capital since the beginning of the day. The sixteenth in May. Russia is deliberately terrorising civilians, using all kinds of missiles and drones," the Prime Minister said.

As Shmyhal emphasised, "the heroic Ukrainian air defense forces - our reliable shield - have once again done their job professionally and perfectly. I thank our defenders!"

The terror of civilians should not be ignored by the international community, he stressed.

According to Shmyhal, "the actions of the Russians are no different from terrorists, and therefore should receive an appropriate response. The terrorist state must be held responsible for its crimes."
