White House condemns latest Russian strike against Ukraine

The White House said on Monday the latest Russian strikes against Ukraine are a reminder of Russian President Vladimir Putin's brutality.

John Kirby, White House national security spokesperson, also told reporters that an oil price cap will not have any long-term impact on global oil prices.

Russian missiles crashed into buildings in the southern Ukrainian region of Zaporizhzhia on Monday, destroying several houses and killing at least two people, a senior Ukrainian official said.

Kyrylo Tymoshenko, deputy head of the presidential office, gave no further details of the attacks. A city official said buildings had been hit in the suburbs of the city of Zaporizhzhia and some Russian missiles had been shot down.

The governor of the Kyiv region said air defenses were working in the region, and told residents to remain in shelters. An energy provider said power had been knocked out in the northern region of Sumy in the latest missile strikes.
