Russia's weekend strike on a residential block in Dnipro, which killed at least 36 people, constitutes a "war crime," EU presidency holder Sweden said on Monday, according to AFP.

"The Swedish government condemns in the strongest terms Russia's continuing systemic attack against civilians... including Saturday's missile strike on an apartment block in Dnipro," Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson told reporters, adding that "intentional attacks against civilians are war crimes."
