British Ambassador to Ukraine Melinda Simmons said that the only threat to Ukrainian civilians is Russian missiles, weapons and looting by Russian troops.

Simmons wrote about this in Twitterreports Ukrinform.

“The only thing that threatens Ukrainian civilians is Russian missiles, weapons and looting by Russian troops. Period. If Russia stopped invading Ukraine, there would be no danger,” the diplomat stressed.

Amnesty International reported in a report released Thursday that the Ukrainian military is putting civilians at risk by setting up bases and deploying weapons in residential areas, including schools and hospitals, in an attempt to repel the Russian invasion.
