Children’s Hospital Hit in Devastating Russian Missile Barrage on Ukraine

At least 20 people were killed across Ukraine on Monday as Russia launched a widespread missile attack targeting multiple cities, including the capital Kyiv. One of the strikes struck the Okhmatdyt Children’s Hospital, causing significant damage and sparking emergency rescue efforts.

The daytime barrage, condemned by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, saw over 40 missiles launched at five Ukrainian cities. Kyiv, Kryvyi Rih, Dnipro, Slovyansk, and Kramatorsk all reported casualties.

While the full extent of the damage at the children’s hospital remains unclear, images show a heavily damaged building with rescue workers scrambling to locate survivors.

President Zelenskyy called for the UN Security Council to convene in response to the attack, which he described as a war crime.

Ukraine claims to have intercepted 30 of the launched missiles. Russia, however, denies targeting civilian infrastructure and alleges the damage at the Kyiv hospital was caused by a malfunctioning Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile.

The international community has widely condemned the attack, with many calling for further sanctions against Russia.

This latest escalation in the ongoing war has heightened fears for the safety of civilians, particularly children, caught in the crossfire.
