Ukraine has called for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council over Russian strikes on civilian targets

Ukraine has called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council over Russian strikes on civilian targets, the UN body said, scheduling the event for Tuesday at 1900 GMT.

A missile strike Monday on a shopping centre in central city of Kremenchuk “is the main focus” of the meeting, said a spokesman for the Albanian mission, which holds the rotating Security Council presidency.

The shelling all over Kyiv on Sunday, which hit a residential complex, will also be discussed at the meeting, the spokesman said.

13 people have been confirmed killed in the Kremenchuk strike, which has already brought condemnation from the UN and world leaders.
