Russia-Ukraine war: Hundreds feared trapped in Ukraine theatre hit by airstrike
Hundreds of civilians are feared trapped inside a theatre which has been smashed by a Russian airstrike in the besieged city of Mariupol
Hundreds of civilians are feared trapped inside a theatre which has been smashed by a Russian airstrike in the besieged city of Mariupol, Ukrainian officials said. A photo released by Mariupol's city council showed an entire section of the 3-story theatre where the civilians had taken shelter collapsed after the strike on Wednesday evening. However, some hope emerged as one of the officials said some people had managed to survive the strike.
Reacting to US President referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin as a "war criminal," Kremlin Press Secretary said that Biden's comments as "unacceptable and unforgivable rhetoric". Meanwhile, at least one person was killed and three wounded after the remains of a downed missile hit a residential building in the Ukranian capital, Kyiv, Ukraine's emergency service said Thursday.
On Wednesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy invoked 9/11 during an urgent appeal to the US Congress for more weapons to stem the Russian assault. US President Joe Biden announced an additional $800 million for Ukraine's military.
