A man armed with a knife who killed two people was killed on Saturday in central Ukraine and eight more injured, including an eight-year-old boy, police said in an incident that the country’s president described as “barbaric”.
National police said in a statement that the attack took place in the industrial town of Kryvyi Rig.
The attacker was arrested and identified as a 37-year-old local resident, police said.
No further details were published and no indication of a possible motive.
President Volodymyr Zelensky, who is from the city, described the attack as a “manifestation of absolute terrorism … it was terrorism, a barbaric way of intimidating people”.
In May, seven people were shot dead during an alcohol-powered fishing trip in central Ukraine, a rare mass shooting in the former Soviet country.
