Systematic rocket attacks on peaceful settlements in Ukraine have provoked an angry reaction in the European Union. The head of EU diplomacy, Josep Borrell, condemned Russia's missile attacks on the Odessa region, calling them a war crime. Borrell wrote about this on Friday, June 1, on Twitter.

"Persons responsible for acts that constitute war crimes will be held accountable in accordance with international law," Borrell said.

Also, official Brussels demands that Moscow immediately stop strikes against the civilian population.

We will remind, on the eve in the Odessa region there was an enemy missile attack. Shells hit an apartment building and two recreation centers. At the moment, 21 dead and dozens of injured are known. There are children among the victims.

Russia continues to claim that it does not strike at civilian targets.
