Ukraine war 6/27

A Russian missile hit a crowded shopping mall in the central Ukrainian city of Kremenchuk. The regional governor said at least 13 people were killed and Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy accused Russia of trying to sabotage people's normal life, targeting a site with over 1,000 people believed inside that posed no military threat. Monday also saw deadly attacks in other Ukrainian cities including Kharkiv and Lysychansk, Ukrainian authorities said. More than 50 Russian missiles hit cities across Ukraine over the weekend.

NATO aims to increase the strength of its rapid reaction force from 40,000 to 300,000 troops, the alliance's Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said. Stoltenberg called the change part of the "biggest overhaul of collective defense and deterrence since the Cold War." NATO allies will meet this week in Madrid and are also expected to approve additional aid to Ukraine.

Zelenskyy met via video with Group of Seven leaders at their summit in Germany, and urged them to approve more military help for his country. The G-7 leaders pledged in a statement to "continue to provide financial, humanitarian, military and diplomatic support and stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes."
