Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will appeal to Western nations at an emergency meeting of the G7 on Tuesday.
Ukraine and Germany called the meeting after a wave of devastating missile attacks on Kiev, Lviv and more than a dozen other major cities. Russian President Vladimir Putin said the attacks are revenge for the bombing of the Kerch bridge linking Russia and Crimea over the weekend.
“They are trying to destroy us and wipe us off the face of the earth. Completely. Destroy our people sleeping at home in Zaporizhzhia. Kill people on their way to work in Dnipro and Kiev,” Zelenskyy said in a video address on Monday. .
Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev warned that attacks will continue until Russia achieves a “complete dismantling” of Ukraine’s “political rule”.
