MOSCOW (AA) - At least two people were killed and 24 others injured in Russia's attack on a hypermarket in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, according to its mayor Ihor Terekhov.

Terekhov said in a statement on Telegram that two aviation bombs were dropped, accusing Russia of "intentionally targeting" the civilian facility.

The mayor said a large number of people went missing after the attack, adding that casualties may further rise.

In a separate statement, head of the regional administration, Oleh Sinehubov, said the strike put the hypermarket on fire, which spread to the area of over 15,000 square meters.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy described the attack as "madness," and complained about lack of air defense systems, urging international partners to provide them as soon as possible.

Russia is yet to comment on Ukraine's claims.
