U.S. ambassador condemns Russian attack on downtown Chernihiv


U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink has commented on today’s Russian missile attack on the center of Chernihiv that killed at least seven people and left many others injured.

The U.S. ambassador reported this on the X social media platform, according to Ukrinform.

“Horrified by news of today’s daytime attack on the historic center of Chernihiv. Innocent men, women, and children enjoying a beautiful Saturday – a holiday in Ukraine – should never end up killed or wounded. Russia’s missile and drone strikes on Ukraine’s cities, ports, and people reflect the depths to which Russia has sunk and must stop. Together with the people of Ukraine, we mourn this tragedy,” Brink wrote.
