So far, two people have been killed and eight others injured, including a child. My condolences to the families and friends of those who were killed.

We need more air defence from our partners. We need to strengthen the Ukrainian air shield to add protection for our people from Russian terror. More air defence systems and more missiles for air defence systems is what saves lives."
