Japan Condemns Russia's Massive Attacks on Ukraine

Japan Condemns Russia's Massive Attacks on Ukraine

   Tokyo, July 9 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshimasa Hayashi on Tuesday condemned Russia's massive missile attacks on Ukraine the previous day.
   "Many citizens were killed. It's extremely serious," Hayashi told a press conference. "(The attacks) cannot be justified for any reason, and we strongly criticize them."
   Russia's attacks hit many cities including the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, where a cruise missile struck a children's hospital. At least 37 people were killed and 170 people were wounded by Monday's attacks.
   Japan will "respond appropriately in cooperation with like-minded nations," Hayashi said, mentioning an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council that will be held on the issue.
