Russian invaders damage 34 hospitals in Ukraine

Russian terrorists have already damaged 34 hospitals in Ukraine, making some of them completely unable to operate.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian Health Minister Viktor Liashko, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Today the enemy has disabled 34 hospitals all over the country. Some of them have their buildings destroyed, networks broken, left without water and electricity supply services Some of them are completely unable to operate. It is another violation of the Geneva Conventions, claiming that health workers cannot be involved in the war, military conflicts. The occupiers are neglecting this, deliberately violating all the provisions of the Geneva Conventions, and proving once again that they are not the army but terrorists,” Liashko said.

In his words, the Ukrainian Health Ministry is keeping in touch with the World Health Organization (WHO), which has already published the first six violations of the Geneva Conventions on its website, recording attacks on hospitals.

This information will be forwarded to international courts.

A reminder that, on February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin initiated a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, starting a war. Russian troops are killing civilians, shelling and destroying the key infrastructure facilities, launching missile strikes on residential houses.
