Russians bombed operating room in the field hospital at Azovstal: casualties reported
In Mariupol, Russian aggressors bombarded an operating room in a military field hospital located on the premises of the Azovstal metallurgical plant, the last stronghold of the Ukrainian defenders in the area. The Geneva Convention guarantees protection of inpatient and mobile medical institutions.
“WARNING!!! Throughout the night, the Russians dropped tonnes worth of air bombs, capable of penetrating any concrete defensive structures, on a military field hospital located on the territory of the Azovstal plant in Mariupol and where the wounded defenders are treated. Then, having already destroyed the site, they continued to mercilessly shell the ruins with naval artillery… Due to the enemy attack, part of the building collapsed — in particular the operating room, which makes it impossible to help our soldiers,” said in the statement of Azov Regiment.
