U.S. 'involved' in deadly Ukrainian attack on Russian bakery - envoy --Washington gives target clearances for all of Kiev's attacks that use HIMARS missiles, Russian ambassador to the UN Vassily Nebenzia has claimed | 7 Feb 2024 | Washington is partially responsible for Ukraine's missile strike on a bakery in the city of Lisichansk in Russia’s Lugansk People's Republic (LPR) last week that killed over two dozen civilians, Moscow's permanent envoy to the UN Vassily Nebenzia stated on Tuesday. On February 3, the Armed Forces of Ukraine used high-power precision weaponry, presumably U.S.-supplied HIMARS missiles, to target the bakery. The attack almost completely destroyed the two-story building and left some 40 people buried in the rubble, according to Nebenzia. Some 28 civilians died in the strike, including a pregnant woman and her five-year-old child. LPR Minister of Emergency Situations Aleksey Poteleschenko was among those killed in the attack. Speaking at an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council initiated by Russia in response to the strike, Nebenzia stressed that the U.S. is to be considered an accomplice in the attack, which Moscow has described as an "act of terrorism."
