BREAKING - VIDEOS: Russian missile hits market in eastern Ukraine, at least 17 dead

Ukrainian officials said at least 16 people were killed and many others wounded in a Russian missile strike on a busy market in the eastern city of Kostyantynivka, sparking immediate condemnation from President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, who hours earlier had met with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Kyiv.

A video of the attack, posted on social media by Ukrainian officials, showed people falling in the streets running through the market in the industrial city, which is near Bakhmut and the front line of the war.

Ukrainian Interior Minister Ihor Klymenko said 17 people were killed and 32 were injured, adding that the search and rescue operation had been completed.

The attack came after Blinken met with top Ukrainian officials in an unannounced trip to Kyiv as he pledged U.S. support for Ukraine's ongoing counteroffensive and “what it needs for the long term.”

Blinken’s visit on September 6 also came just hours after the Ukrainian capital was again targeted by Russian missiles.
