Ukrainian rocket strikes bakery, killing at least 28 people including a child, Russia claims:
A Ukrainian rocket fired at a Russian-occupied city hit a bakery and killed at least 28 people, including nine women and a child, over the weekend, Moscow officials said.
Russian-backed leaders in the occupied Luhansk region claimed Ukraine struck the Adriatic Restaurant in the city of Lysychansk on Saturday with the US-supplied shell.
The restaurant had a bakery set up for civilians, who were caught up in the blast and buried under its rubble, Moscow-appointed official Leonid Pasechnik said in a statement.
Pasechnik said 28 people were killed in the explosion and another 10 people were quickly rescued from the debris.
At least four more people were pulled out by Sunday morning, with all of them listed in “extremely grave condition,” according to Russia’s emergency ministry.
Moscow’s Foreign Ministry condemned Saturday’s strike and attempted to use the incident to warn the European Union of what its money would be used for after the EU agreed to allocate 50 billion euros, or more than $54 billion, to Kyiv.
“EU citizens should know how their taxes are used – they are used to buy deadly weapons systems and send them to the Kyiv regime which uses them to kill civilians,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement.
Ukrainian officials have yet to comment on Saturday’s attack. --->READ MORE HERE

Details: On the afternoon of 3 February, Leonid Pasechnik, the leader of the LPR terrorist group, reported the shelling of a bakery in Lysychansk, blaming the Ukrainian army for the attack. He claims that 28 people were killed . The Ukrainian side has not officially commented on these statements.
As the IDPs from Lysychansk said, in one of the videos posted by the Russian Emergencies Ministry on Telegram, they recognised the restaurant as the Adriatic, which was located on the outskirts of the city, in the part of it that was adjacent to the Lysychansk oil refinery.
The Lysychansk City Military Administration told Suspilne Donbas on 4 February that the bakery started operating in this location after the city was occupied.
Quote from a representative of the Lysychansk City Military Administration: "The facility in question was used by the occupiers for their own purposes. They would eat and hold meetings there. The bakery started operating after the occupation of the city. It was opened to bake bread for the frontline...
The strike was carried out while the occupiers were gathering there. The list of the dead that is circulating on the Internet is mostly made up of collaborators, such as Firsov, who defected to the occupiers in March." --->READ MORE HERE
