With shelling and missile attacks on civilians, the enemy decided to try to achieve with terror what it failed to achieve for nine months.

“The terrorist state continues to fight against civilians and civilian objects. As a result of a missile attack on the maternity ward of Vilnyansk hospital, an infant died and a woman was injured.  There are probably still people under the rubble,” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky posted on Facebook.

“The enemy has once again decided to try to achieve with terror and murder what he wasn’t able to achieve for 9 months and won’t be able to achieve.  Instead, he will only be held to account for all the evil he brought to our country,” Zelensky stressed.

As reported, on the night of November 23, the two-story building of the maternity ward was destroyed in a missile attack on the territory of the hospital in Vilniansk, Zaporizhzhia region.
