Children's Hospital Bombed, Civilians Killed

The city of Kyiv awoke to a nightmare on Tuesday, as Russian missiles rained down on the Ukrainian capital, striking a children's hospital and residential buildings. At least 41 civilians, including three children, were killed in the deadliest attack on the city in four months.

The Okhmatdyt Children's Hospital was hit during the daylight aerial attack, leaving a scene of devastation. Windows and doors were blown out, walls blackened, and blood splattered on the floor. The intensive care unit, operating theatres, and oncology departments all sustained damage.

Three heart operations were underway at the time of the strike, and debris from the explosion entered patients' open chests. The hospital lost water, light, and oxygen, forcing the transfer of patients to other facilities.

Rescuers worked tirelessly through the rubble, searching for victims and clearing debris. Smoke rose from the building, and volunteers and emergency crews worked in protective masks. Mothers carried children away on their backs, their faces etched with fear and grief.

A few hours after the initial strike, another air raid siren sent many rushing to the hospital's shelter. Mothers carried their bandaged children in their arms, and medical workers pushed other patients on trolleys. Volunteers handed out sweets to try to calm the children.

"My child is terrified," cried Marina Ploskonos, whose four-year-old son had spinal surgery last week. "This shouldn't be happening, it's a children's hospital."

The attack has been condemned by Ukrainian officials and the international community. President Zelensky called it "genocide" and demanded a response from the world. The UN Security Council will meet to discuss the horror, and Britain's ambassador to the UN, Barbara Woodward, vowed to "call out Russia's cowardly and depraved attack."

The bombing of the children's hospital is a stark reminder of the human cost of this war. It is a tragedy that demands justice and accountability. The world must stand with Ukraine and condemn Russia's brutal aggression.
