UN condemns Ukrainian attack that killed 27 civilians in Russian city --Moscow has called the bombardment of a busy market in Donetsk a "barbaric terrorist act" | 21 Jan 2024 | The United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has condemned the attack against the capital of Russia’s Donetsk People's Republic, but refused to pin the blame for the shelling that left at least 27 civilians killed and over two dozen injured including several children. "The Secretary-General strongly condemns all attacks against civilians and civilian infrastructure, including today's shelling of the city of Donetsk in Ukraine," the spokesperson for the UN chief said in a brief boilerplate statement on Sunday night. "Attacks against civilians and civilian infrastructure are prohibited under international humanitarian law, are unacceptable and must stop immediately," it added.
