Law enforcement officials noted that the attack was supported by reconnaissance drones for targeting, suggesting Russia's "deliberate tactic" of targeting civilians.

"The Russian military deliberately launched several ordnances to cause as many deaths as possible among workers and customers and to intimidate city residents," the message said.
