Zhyvyskyi Quote: "There was a rocket attack on the territory of the Shostka region."

Details: Later, Minister of Culture Alexander Tkachenko reported that a Russian rocket had struck the Jewish cemetery in Hlukhiv.

Tkachenko Quote: "On the territory of the Jewish cemetery in Hlukhiv, Jews are buried - victims of the pogrom of 1918. The mass grave is at the same time the grave of the tzaddiks Menachem-Nohim-David Heselov and Israel-Dov-Ber Nokhimov Shumiatskykh. This is not only a historical monument, it is a special symbol for the whole Jewish people.

The fact that the graves of the main tzaddiks have survived is proof that all the higher powers are on our side."
