More than 50 killed in missile strike on Ukrainian village

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Ukrainians needed no reminder of the horrifying reality of Russia’s invasion, but the attack on the tiny village of Hroza has tonight put the conflict front and centre in the minds of the international community once again.

The UN’s envoy described it as ‘horrifying’ and ‘barbaric’, while President Zelenskyy – attending a summit to try and re-energise the support of his allies – called it ‘Russian terror’. Moscow, meanwhile, hasn’t commented.
