Deadly Market Attack in Ukraine Overshadows Blinken's Visit

More than 15 were killed in the attack

A reported Russian attack on a city in eastern Ukraine that killed at least 16 people overshadowed a visit on Wednesday by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken to offer Kyiv support for its counteroffensive against Russia's invasion forces.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy condemned the attack, which hit a market, shops and a pharmacy in the city of Kostiantynivka, close to the battlefield. He said a child was among the 16 or more dead, and many people were wounded.

"This Russian evil must be defeated as soon as possible," Zelenskiy said.
