Russia blames Ukraine for attack on children’s hospital in Kiev

Russia’s ambassador to the UN said his country was not responsible for the attack on Kiev’s main children’s hospital on Monday (8) and blamed Ukraine.

The speech took place at the UN Security Council this Tuesday (9).

“If the Russian missile that was aimed at the military object had hit the hospital, then the hospital would have been completely destroyed. I mean, I am not rejoicing for the victims or the injured who were in the hospital at the time of the attack. Moreover, it was the Ukrainians themselves who did this,” Vasily Nebenzya said.

Ukraine claims to have “unequivocal evidence”

Ukraine’s security service said it had unequivocal evidence that the medical unit was hit by a Russian Kh-101 cruise missile during the deadliest series of attacks in months.

Authorities released images of what they said were fragments of the gun’s engine.

The Kremlin said, without providing evidence, that Ukrainian anti-missile devices, not Russia, hit the children’s hospital, which is one of the largest in Europe and treats patients with serious conditions including cancer and kidney disease.
