Quote: “According to preliminary information, a Kh-22 missile was used. This type of missile leads to the greatest human casualties, because the missile is extremely inaccurate, has a huge deviation rate [from its course – ed.]. Therefore, the use of such weapons for targets in densely populated areas is clearly a war crime.

This type of missile was used in Serhiivka and Kremenchuk. It can be launched by one Russian unit only, the 52nd Guards Heavy Bomber Aviation Regiment.”



Details: On Sunday, Yurii Belousov, Head of the Department for Combating Crimes Committed in Conditions of Armed Conflict, and of the Prosecutor General’s Office, together with the leadership of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Prosecutor’s Office and investigators of the central apparatus of the Security Service of Ukraine, inspected the site of the missile attack by the Russian Armed Forces on a residential building in the city of Dnipro.

The Prosecutor General’s Office emphasised that there are no military targets around the place where the Russian missile hit.

Quote from Belousov: “This tragedy is not just a war crime, it is a crime against humanity. A large-scale killing of civilians in Ukraine. Every important piece of evidence will be documented. The investigation and prosecutors will establish and bring to justice both those who directly launched the missiles and their commanders who gave this criminal order. The entire Russian military leadership.”
