Russian attacks to be 'qualified as genocide' - Zelensky

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a video address on Friday stated that the Russian shelling and missile strikes on the country's cities, including Severodonetsk, Desna and Odesa, aimed at "killing as many Ukrainians as possible" will in the future "be qualified as a genocide."

"This is a deliberate and criminal attempt to kill as many Ukrainians as possible. Destroy as many houses, social facilities and enterprises as possible. This is what will be qualified as the genocide of the Ukrainian people and for which the occupiers will definitely be brought to justice," Zelensky underlined.

He also noted that the first Ukrainian trial against an alleged Russian war criminal "has already begun", highlighting that the process will end with the "full restoration of justice within the international tribunal."
