Video reveals Russian lies about missile strikes in Ukrainian malls

Uncover the Russian story with a deadly attack

KyivUkraineShopping MallRussia suggests that missile strikes never happened A video has emerged that appears to be refuting the publicity of. At least 18 people were killed and about 60 were injured in the strike on Monday, but Russia claims to have hit only legitimate military targets near the mall, Ukrainian officials said.

A video from a security camera in the area clearly captures the moment when Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said a Russian X-22 cruise missile crashed into a shopping center in the central city of Kremenchuk. rice field. Just before the people in the park are seen falling to the ground and escaping to hide, shock waves undulate across the area. 

On Wednesday, rescue workers were still searching for the remains of the shopping center, and about 20 people were listed as missing.

Zelenskyy states that he has shown an X-22 rocket, a long-range cruise missile designed to sink American aircraft carriers in the former Soviet Union. I shared another video. Fly diagonally towards the mall, flying huge fireballs and debris in all directions. Ukrainian leadersaid on Tuesdayto "act immediately" to "responsible for Russia" for what the United Nations described as a terrorist attack on its country. I asked.

"Absolute Terrorism" – @ZelenskyyUa, and has released a video of a deliberate missile attack at the Kremenchuk shopping center. Russian propaganda is always lying. There is no coincidence. Threatening the victims of the population and the masses is a deliberate blow.

In his post In the video, Zelenskyy accused Russia of hitting the mall "intentionally."

"They wanted to kill as many people as possible in a peaceful city in a regular shopping mall," he said.  

Security camera videos appear to blame Russia's widespread online promotion. This suggests that the attack was forged and that Russian troops only attacked military facilities near the shopping center. Various Russian accounts suggest that the target site is a warehouse with weapons supplied from the West or a base for Ukrainian military vehicles.

CBS News visited a facility just north of the mall and found an asphalt factory. I met Mikola Danireiko, the director of the Credomash Road Machinery Factory, which mixes asphalt and paved roads.

"It's a fake," he told CBS News about Russia's allegations. "I heard you're sending goods by rail from here. Can you see the rail?" 

A cement factory was hit by a missile on Monday, but there was no rail.

Russian media also said the mall was "not up" at the time of the strike, but recent online videos suggest it isn't.

And you can't fake horror: the day after the strike, when you started interviewing a local woman near the mall, an air raid alert started beeping on her phone and she was bolted. I fixed it.

She was clearly afraid of another Russian missile attack — she might claim that Moscow didn't happen again.
