Zelensky: invaders shell hospital in Kupyansk, killing doctor, injuring nurse

The Russian military opened fire on a medical facility in Kupiansk, Kharkiv Region, as a result of which a doctor was killed and a nurse was injured.

That’s according to President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, who broke the news via Telegram, Ukrinform reports.

"Kupyansk. The main medical building of the city hospital is under fire. A doctor was killed, a nurse was wounded. The enemy continues to mercilessly terrorize the civilian population," Zelensky wrote.

The president emphasized that every occupier must clearly remember that retribution for every strike on Ukrainian cities and Ukrainian people is inevitable.
