Russian bombing has completely destroyed a children’s hospital in the besieged port city of Mariupol in southeastern Ukraine. “The Russian occupying forces dropped several bombs on the children’s hospital. The destruction is colossal,” Ukrainian authorities reported on Wednesday.
It was initially unclear if there were any injuries – but President Volodymyr Zelenskyy claimed there were still children under the rubble as he shared harrowing footage of a obliterated maternity ward. Selenskyj had just recently mourned the death of a girl who also died of thirst under the rubble of a bombed house in Mariupol.
