An “atrocity” where “the destruction is colossal” is how the bombing site of a Ukrainian children’s hospital is being described by authorities. Ukraine accused Russia on Wednesday of bombing the hospital in Mariupol during an agreed ceasefire. The ceasefire was supposed to allow civilians a moment to escape the war.

“Direct strike of Russian troops at the maternity hospital. People, children are under the wreckage,” Volodymyr Zelensky said on Twitter. “Russia had said it would hold fire to let thousands of civilians flee Mariupol and other besieged cities on Wednesday. But the city council said the hospital had been hit several times by an air strike” reports Reuters.

“The destruction is colossal,” said the city council in an online post. President Volodymyr Zelensky called it an “atrocity”. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, asked by Reuters for comment on the reported bombing, said: “Russian forces do not fire on civilian targets.”

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry posted video footage of what it said was the hospital showing holes where windows should have been in a three-story building. 17 people were wounded, including women in labor. Reuters said the reports could not immediately be verified.

Reuters reports:

Earlier Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said Russia had broken the ceasefire around the southern port, which lies between Russian-backed separatist areas of eastern Ukraine and Crimea, annexed by Moscow from Ukraine in 2014.

“Russia continues holding hostage over 400,000 people in Mariupol, blocks humanitarian aid and evacuation. Indiscriminate shelling continues,” he wrote on Twitter. “Almost 3,000 newborn babies lack medicine and food.”

Ukraine officials have also said that at least 1,170 civilians had been killed in Mariupol since the start of the invasion. A gruesome 47 people were buried in a mass grave on Wednesday. It was not possible to verify the figures, reported Reuters.

Russia’s defence ministry blamed Ukraine for the failure of the evacuation and said that the situation faced by civilians in Mariupol had reached a “catastrophic scale”. A senior U.S. defence official said there were indications Russia’s military was using so-called “dumb” bombs that are not precision-guided and that Washington had observed “increasing damage to civilian infrastructure and civilian casualties”.

    Are we supposed to believe *this* really dubious report after all of the proven fake news reports coming out about this conflict? A children’s hospital? “What a monster! I knew Putin was a monster!” I mean, c’mon. Next thing you know, they’ll be reporting this monster is “putting kids in cages!” or “ripping them from their mother’s arms!” Oh, wait…

    Hi Sarah. I’ve seen pictures on other websites of Ukrainian civilians being trained in how to use weapons in front of an empty building. That building looks suspiciously like the bombed “hospital”. In light of the news of the “Ukrainian” bio-labs is anybody telling the truth anymore? Apart from a great show the other day by Tucker Carlson revealing all about this, nobody else has said anything. I’m writing from Melbourne, Australia and even Sky News. our version of Fox, as of yesterday hadn’t mentioned the labs. A sad state of affairs isn’t it?

    Since the Dark forces are going all-out to paint Russia as the Bad Guy in this conflict – even to denying what has now been admitted, that there are bioweapons labs in Ukraine; a potential crime against humanity, were such pathogens to be released (with some evidence that they have already been released, in some trial runs) – and nothing is beyond what they would do to win the day on their side, being mostly atheists and having no morals, I would be careful to buy their take on this event. And Reuters? Not a good source of true information. It’s time for Truth to prevail in our communications, not all of this propaganda, which leaves one to doubt most of what the MSM attempts to get us to believe.

    It has been a fact (United Nations statements) that AZOV has been bombing and shelling citizens in eastern Ukraine since 2014. AZOV is the main element of the Ukraine army stationed in eastern Ukraine and are Nazis. Swastika is on their flag.

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
