Venediktova said it was the east of Ukraine that was under attack last night, she told Sky News, “What we see now in Ukraine is still fighting in eastern part of our country absolutely brutal and aggressive.
“Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv regions were under attack last night, and actually we understand that Russian troops again and again started to take our territory and to kill our people.”
She added, “This morning we have 1,222 dead people in the Kyiv region only.
“Of course what we see on the ground across all regions of Ukraine is war crimes, crimes against humanity and we do everything to fix it.”
Speaking of the missile attack on a railway station in Kramatorsk on Friday, she said, “Absolutely it’s a war crime, it was a Russian missile which killed more than 50 people.
“These people just wanted to save their lives, they wanted to be evacuated. It was women, it was children and they just wanted to save their lives.”
Sky News Trevor Philips asked if she knows for a fact that this was indeed a Russian attack, Venediktova said, “We have evidence.”
