A Russian missile hit a clinic in the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipro, killing at least two people and injuring 23 in the attack. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy called the attack a crime against humanity.
The video footage shows the collapsed building, from which smoke billows, and rescuers watch what happens. Much of the top floor of the three-story building was badly damaged. Nearby, on the road, lay the body of a man.
“Another (Russian) missile strike, another crime against humanity,” Zelenskyy tweeted, describing the damage to a clinic building in Dnipro. “Only a malevolent state can fight the clinics. There can be no military purpose in this. This is pure Russian terror.
Dnipropetrovsk region chief Sergei Lysak said a 69-year-old man had died, adding: “He was just passing by when a Russian terrorist rocket fell on the city.”
Lysak said the body of another person was pulled from the rubble and 21 of the 23 injured were taken to hospital. Three people were seriously injured, he said.
Ukraine’s Defense Ministry has labeled it a serious war crime under the Geneva Conventions, which define how military personnel and civilians are to be treated in times of war.
Russia has yet to comment on developments in the Dnieper, which has come under frequent shelling since Moscow launched a full-scale invasion 15 months ago.
