One of the drones Russia launched in its mass drone attack on Kharkiv bore the inscription "For Crocus City Hall," the Kharkiv Regional Prosecutor's Office reported on Telegram on April 4.

"It's treacherous and cynical to strike with drones at peaceful residential neighborhoods in the dead of night," the statement said. "Targeting the State Emergency Service workers who bravely and selflessly risk their lives every day to save each one of us."

Despite not sharing any evidence to support its spurious accusations, Russia continues to push its false narrative that Ukraine was involved in the Crocus City Hall terror attack carried out by ISIS terrorists.

Russian troops attacked Kharkiv with Shahed drones overnight on April 4. Mayor Ihor Terekhov reported that one of the drones struck a 14-story building, killing four and injuring 12 people, and destroying several apartments.

Three rescuers were killed during a rescue after a second wave of drones struck.
