Karacsony expresses sympathies to Kyiv mayor

Budapest Mayor Gergely Karacsony has expressed his sympathies and solidarity to the mayor of Kyiv over Russian air strikes on the city on Monday.

“I have expressed my sympathies and solidarity in a message to Vitali Klitschko, the mayor of Kyiv, after the Russian aggressors started bombing the city again,” Karacsony said on Facebook.

Several civilians were killed in the attacks, Karacsony said. “Even in a war there can be no excuse for such a heinous step which was clearly not directed at military or logistical targets,” he added.

Karacsony said he continued to trust that peace would be achieved, “meaning that the Russian invaders will pull out of Ukraine as soon as possible”.

The Ukrainian army said Russia launched 75 missiles on Ukrainian cities on Monday. At least eight people were killed and 24 injured in the air strikes on Kyiv, the authorities said.
