Quote: „Unfortunately, we have the first child death among the patients at Okhmatdyt National Children’s Hospital during the terrorist incident on 8 July.

A young boy who was in a critical condition in Okhmatdyt’s intensive care unit at the time of the missile attack has died. After [the attack – ed.], he was brought to one of Kyiv’s hospitals.“

Background: 

The Russians launched a strike on the Okhmatdyt National Children’s Specialised Hospital in Kyiv on 8 July. One of the buildings was destroyed. The Kyiv authorities reported that two adults had been killed and 32 injured.
The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) defined Russia’s attack on the Okhmatdyt National Children’s Specialised Hospital in Kyiv as a war crime and initiated criminal proceedings into the matter. Early reports from SSU investigators indicate the Russians used a Kh-101 air-launched cruise missile to attack the medical facility.
The Ukrainian Air Force also clearly denied the possibility that a Ukrainian air defence missile could have hit the Okhmatdyt. The evidence is a screenshot of a video and a photo of a Kh-101 missile, as well as a photo of an AIM-120 missile, the kind of projectile that NASAMS surface-to-air missile systems use.
Bellingcat analysts as well as a number of independent nuclear weapons and missile technology experts concluded that the attack on Kyiv’s Okhmatdyt hospital involved the use of a Russian Kh-101 missile.
