An Ukrainska Pravda source said there are casualties in the hospital.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who likely arrived in Warsaw on 8 July, stated that Kyiv’s Okhmatdyt is one of the most important children’s hospitals not only in Ukraine but also in Europe.

Quote from Zelenskyy: „The hospital has been damaged in a Russian strike, and there are people under the rubble; the exact number of injured and fatalities is unknown. Everyone is now helping to clear the rubble: doctors and ordinary people.

Russia definitely knows what its missiles are targeting and must be held fully accountable for all its crimes: against people, against children and against humanity in general. It is of paramount importance that the world does not remain silent about this and that everyone sees what Russia is and what it is doing.“
