President Volodymyr Zelensky has blasted Vladimir Putin’s continued assault on Ukraine as “absolute evil” following another missile strike in the country. The Russians targeted a block of flats in Ukrainian-held Zaporizhzhia in a double-tap strike, so-called because it involves a second artillery blitz after the initial hit.

At least three people are known to have died and several more have been injured, including a young child.

President Zelensky slammed Putin and his forces for the attack, calling it “absolute evil”.

He told a a number of European leaders: “Absolute meanness! Absolute evil!

“There have already been thousands of manifestations of such evil.

“Unfortunately, there may be thousands more.

“But the day will come when Russian evil will lose.”

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba added that Russia was trying to “sow fear”.

He said: “Russian terror must be stopped, by force of weapons, sanctions and full isolation.”

This assault comes days after 30 people died when a convoy of civilian cars was shelled, with President Zelensky blaming the Kremlin for the attack.
