SCHLOSS ELMAU, Germany (Reuters) – The leaders of the Group of Seven leading industrial democracies, gathered for their annual summit in southern Germany, condemned Russia’s “abominable” missile attack on a shopping mall in the Ukraine town of Kremenchuk.
“We stand united with Ukraine in mourning the innocent victims of this brutal attack,” they wrote in a joint statement tweeted by the German government spokesperson.
“Indiscriminate attacks on innocent civilians contribute to a war crime,” they added. “Russian President Putin and those responsible will be held to account.”
