A Russian Airstrike struck a Ukrainian mall on Monday.
18 are confirmed dead while 36 remain missing.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy accused Russia of deliberately hitting the civilian target.
Firefighters and soldiers searched on Tuesday for survivors in the rubble of a Ukrainian shopping mall, where authorities said 36 people were still missing after a Russian missile strike that had killed at least 18.
Relatives of the missing were lined up on Tuesday at a hotel across the street from the wreckage of the shopping center, where rescue workers had set up a base.
Exhausted-looking firefighters sat on a kerb after a night battling the blaze and searching for survivors, mostly in vain. Oleksandr, wetting his face from a water bottle on a bench, said his team had worked all night picking through the rubble.
“We pulled out five bodies. We didn’t find anybody alive,” he said
⚡️ Zelensky: 'Russia strikes shopping center in Kremenchuk, while over thousand people inside.'
“The mall is on fire, firefighters are trying to extinguish the fire, the number of victims is impossible to imagine," said President Volodymyr Zelensky.

This war needs to end and now. The longer it goes on the more innocent people will be hurt.
