Germany’s Foreign Ministry has in a briefing that the building housing its consulate in Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine, was hit during Russian missile attacks on the city.
This came in the wake of the appointment of a former general, considered to be brutal, as the new commander of Russian troops by President Vladimir Putin, after the sacking of another general and some recorded losses in the ongoing war.
The bombed consulate, according to Germany’s Foreign Ministry, had not been in use since the war started in Ukraine.
A former head of the Böll Foundation in Kyiv, Sergei Sumlenny, posted photos on Twitter and said, addressing Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock.
According to reports, multiple Ukrainian cities have been attacked by Russian forces, which began when Kyiv was hit by Russian missiles.
The attacks on Kyiv are reportedly a retaliation promised by Putin in response to Crimea bridge blast by Ukrainian forces
