Kremlin issues warning over 'barbaric' Crimea attack --U.S. involvement in the deadly Ukrainian cluster munition strike on a crowded beach in Russia's Sevastopol will have consequences, Dmitry Peskov has said | 24 June 2024 | Moscow "understands perfectly well" who is behind Sunday's deadly strike on the city of Sevastopol in Russia's Crimea, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov has said, vowing Russian retaliation. The Ukrainian attack carried out with U.S.-supplied ATACMS missiles killed at least four people, among them two children, and injured more than 150, according to local officials. Four missiles were intercepted by air defenses, while a fifth deviated from its trajectory and detonated its cluster warhead over the busy Black Sea beach. As a result, the falling fragments of cluster munitions led to numerous civilian casualties, the Russian Defense Ministry stated on Sunday."We absolutely barbaric missile attack in Crimea. We understand perfectly well who is behind this...who is aiming these absolutely technically complex missiles at the targets," Peskov told reporters during a press briefing on Monday. "You should ask my colleagues in Europe, and above all in Washington, ask the press secretaries there why their governments are killing Russian children. Just ask them this question," Peskov told the journalists in attendance.
