President Volodymyr Zelenskyy reacted to the killing of foreign volunteers in the Donetsk region in his everyday address to the people.

"Today, near the town of Chasiv Yar in Donetsk region, Russian terrorists targeted volunteers' car. Direct hit with an anti-tank guided missile," he said.

The President added that it is now known that as a result of the shelling, Canadian Anthony Ignat died, and possibly, Spaniard Emma Igual.

"This Russian shelling once again confirms how close the war against Ukraine is for everyone in the world who truly values human life and who considers it a common moral duty of humanity to stop terror and defeat evil," Zelenskyy said.
