The Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, condemned the “extremely brutal attack,’’ which took place during peak traffic hours.

He lamented on his X platform that the Russians were exploiting the lack of adequate air defences.

Zelensky also said that reliable weapons were needed to strike Russian positions just across Ukraine’s border.

He called for permission to use weapons supplied by the United States and others to hit Russian troops in those areas.
