Ukrainian President Zelenskyy said that Russians launched a missile attack on a hospital in Ukraine on Friday, killing 1 person and injuring 15 others.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced that a Russian missile attack was carried out on a hospital in the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipro on Friday. The attack resulted in at least 1 death and 15 injuries.

Zelenskyy condemned the attack as a crime against humanity, Reuters reported. Ukraine's Defense Ministry described it as a serious war crime under the Geneva Convention, which sets out the behavior that must be observed towards soldiers and civilians.


Zelenskyy shared the scene of the attack on his Twitter account. Firefighters tried to extinguish the devastated hospital.

"Another (Russian) missile attack, another crime against humanity," Zelenskyy wrote on Twitter.

"The buildings of a psychological clinic and a veterinary clinic in the city of Dnipro were destroyed. As of now, one person was killed and 15 were wounded."

Russia has denied accusations that its soldiers committed war crimes.


Ukrainian officials said earlier on Friday that air defenses had shot down 10 missiles and more than 20 drones launched by Russia in overnight attacks on the capital Kyiv, Dnipro and eastern regions.

Russia did not immediately comment on the allegations about this airstrike. But it said Ukraine had hit two regions in southern Russia with rockets and drones.
