Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called for Russia to be recognized as a terrorist state after dozens of Ukrainian prisoners of war were killed in attacks in separatist Donetsk.

Shelling in Olenivka in the eastern Donetsk region on Friday left “more than fifty dead,” Zelenskyy said in a Telegram post.

“The attack by the occupying forces on Olenivka is a premeditated war crime by the Russians, a premeditated mass murder of Ukrainian prisoners of war,” said Zelenskyy. “There should be clear legal recognition of Russia as a terrorist state. Russia has proven with numerous terrorist attacks that it is the biggest source of terrorism in the world today.”

Russia blames Ukraine for the strike. At least 53 died in the attack, according to a spokesman for the Russian-backed separatists, who claimed Ukraine carried out the attack using American-made HIMARS missiles, Portal reported. On Sunday, Russia invited the Red Cross and the United Nations to investigate the attack, CNBC reported.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian government has launched an investigation and found that the “occupying state attacked the territory,” CNN reported.

“Any occupier who abuses Ukrainians, who tortures and kills them, should know that there will be punishment. If some of the Russian killers are hoping that they will not be brought to justice, that they are hiding somewhere, let them know: they will be held accountable in any case. Geography, time, borders and walls will not stop a just retribution,” Zelenskyy said on Telegram.
