Russia Hits Bread Factory in Ukraine, Killing 13 People

Russian forces killed at least 13 civilians after an air strike hit a bread factory in northern Ukraine on March 7, Ukrainian officials said.

According to local emergency services, they rescued five people out of around 30 people believed to have been at the factory in Makariv, west of Ukrainian capital Kyiv.

“They’re bombing the life out of everything that is moving,” Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said.

Russia denied targeting civilians.

The strike took place as the number of refugees fleeing Ukraine from the Russian attacks reached 1.7 million in 11 days, according to the United Nations.

The strike also occurred as talks between Ukrainian officials and Russian officials make little progress.
