International Outcry and Response

The international community swiftly condemned the attack, labeling it a war crime and calling for Russia to be held accountable.

Leaders from the UK, France, and other nations voiced outrage, demanding justice for the innocent lives lost in what they termed as ‘barbaric acts’.
