"The G7 summit must respond with more sanctions against Russia and more heavy weapons for Ukraine", urged Dmytro Kouleba, the head of Ukrainian diplomacy, on Twitter, calling for "defeating sickly imperialism" Russian following this attack which injured at least four people.

"A 7-year-old Ukrainian child was sleeping peacefully in Kyiv until a Russian cruise missile blew up her building," said the Ukrainian foreign minister.

Yet spared by Russian bombing since early June, Kyiv was again targeted early Sunday morning, noted an AFP team, which saw the top three floors of a building on fire and its stairwell completely destroyed. .

The mayor of the Ukrainian capital, Vitaly Klitschko, denounced a way "to intimidate the Ukrainians (...) at the approach of the NATO summit", scheduled from Tuesday in Madrid.

"It is extremely important that during the summits this week, the G7 and NATO demonstrate that their commitment to defending Ukraine will never be weaker than (Vladimir) Putin's desire to take it over," Mr. Kouleba also insisted on Sunday in a column co-written with his British counterpart, Liz Truss.

The minister again called for "increasing and accelerating the supply of heavy weapons, toughening sanctions against all those who contribute to Putin's war and completely stopping Russian energy imports".

“Each additional weapon will help the Ukrainians repel the Russian invaders” and “each new sanction will contribute to draining Putin's military machine of resources and saving more lives,” he said.
