Ten adults and one child killed in Russian shelling of Mykolaiv

On April 4, 2022, Russian troops shelled Mykolaiv downtown, having killed 10 adults and one child.

The relevant statement was made by Mykolaiv Regional Military Administration Head Vitalii Kim on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“These creatures shelled a children’s hospital during the day, killing a child and a man. Where they hit a bus stop and shopping stalls, nine people were killed. A total of 61 people were wounded,” Kim told.

In his words, Russians intentionally shelled one of the central districts in the city. There are no military facilities nearby.

Earlier, Mykolaiv Mayor Oleksandr Senkevych reported that 10 people had been killed and 46 wounded in Russian shelling of Mykolaiv with cluster munitions.

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