Ukraine – New Russian air strikes (May 26, 2023)

France condemns in the strongest possible terms the Russian missile and drone strikes that again targeted Kyiv last night as well as the Kharkiv and Dnipropetrovsk regions. This is the thirteenth attack on the capital this month.

These strikes once again deliberately targeted civilian objectives, including a hospital in Dnipro, in flagrant violation of international humanitarian law.

As Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Catherine Colonna has stressed repeatedly, these unacceptable actions are war crimes and cannot go unpunished. France will continue to provide support to Ukrainian courts and to the International Criminal Court to combat impunity for such crimes.

France will continue to provide military and humanitarian assistance to help Ukraine resist this illegal aggression.
