May 24, 2024, Kharkiv, Ukraine: Ukraine's President VOLODYMYR ZELENSKY, 46, gets pensive while touring the Kharkiv printing house destroyed by Russian missile shelling the day before Kharkiv, Friday killing 7 people and injuring 21. Zelelnsky commented, ''Yesterday, a Russian missile strike killed 7 here. My condolences go out to their families and friends. 21 were injured. The printing facility was destroyed, and tens of thousands of books were burned. A lot of children's books, educational materials, and textbooks.'' According to regional authorities, Russia used S-300 missiles, fired from inside Russian territory, to strike the factory belonging to one of the largest printing facilities in Ukraine. ''Russian terror must never go unpunished. Step by step, we ensure that the Russian state bears the consequences and costs of its evil,'' Zelensky added. On May 23, Foreign Minister Kuleba again urged Kyiv's partners to provide additional Patriot air defense systems in the wake of the strike. ''This heinous attack must remind everyone around the world that Ukraine still urgently needs seven 'Patriot' systems,'' Kuleba said on X, thanking Germany for pledging an additional system last month.
