Following the Russian missile strike on the shopping centre in Kremenchuk, Ukraine on Monday, June 27, British Intelligence has claimed that it may have been accidental.

In the British Intelligence’s latest update on Ukraine, they claimed that the Russian missile strike in Kremenchuk may have been accidental.

British Intelligence stated:

“There is a realistic possibility the missile strike on the Kremenchuk shopping centre on 27 June 2022 was intended to hit a nearby infrastructure target.”

This “accidental” Russian missile strike, could have been caused by Russia’s “inaccuracy in conducting long range strikes”, which according to the British Intelligence Service, has been seen in previous incidents such as the Kramatorsk railway station on April 9.

The missile strike on Kramatrosk railway station resulted in mass civilian casualty, with British Intelligence believing this likely to occur again due to Russia’s shortage of modern precision strike weapons and inability of their targeting planners.

The claims have lead to some controversy on Twitter with one user responding:

“Any way 1 of the “partners” can get several 600mile range missiles into UA to point NE towards oh I dunno; Moscow/Kremlin? Knowing full well it won’t do much damage w/all the bunkers-but think it’d wake the ppl of Moscow up! Surely they have to be missing 25K soldiers?”

Another Twitter user replied:

“Concerning the April event; they targeted the railways first, unable to leave, civilians would be left on station.”

“Targeting station after in a timely fashion seems cynic and in agreement with behavior. Wasn’t an accident, difficult to prove, sure. Behavior doesn’t lie.”
