Maternity and children's hospital struck by Russians

As the Russian invasion on Ukraine continues to advance, Mariupol has been suffering attacks for days and several attempts at a ceasefire have failed.


In one of Russia's most shocking and heartless attacks yet, a maternity and children's hospital in Mariupol, Ukraine was hit by Russian airstrikes, during what was supposed to be a ceasefire, according to Interfax Ukraine.

President Volodymyr Zelensky has called on Western leaders to impose a no-fly zone as several people are trapped under the wreckage. According to officials in Mariupol, at least 17 people were injured, but no deaths have been reported yet and none of the reported injuries were children.

Footage published by the Mariupol city council shows buildings badly burned and cars completely destroyed outside of the hospital, where an enormous crater sits.

The city of Mariupol has already been surrounded by Russians for several days and there is no electricity or water in the city. At least 1,170 civilians have died in Mariupol since the invasion began.
