“Russia shot at rows of women and children in the Kyiv region, who tried to evacuate along the previously agreed ‘green’ corridor.”
“As a result of this brutal act, seven people died. One of them was a child,” the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense tweeted.
According to CNN, a recent report from Ukraine’s Defense Intelligence said civilians fled via routes that were not the agreed “green corridor”.
A group of women and children were trying to evacuate near the village of Peremoga in Kyiv on Friday (11/3/2022) when they were shot by Russia, according to Ukrainian intelligence services.
Russia did not immediately comment on the incident, but has denied targeting civilians since it invaded Ukraine last month.
