    Russia bombed a children’s hospital and two schools in kyiv, killing a 9-year-old girl, her mother and another woman

    Moscow troops fired cruise and ballistic missiles at the Ukrainian cital. They recorded at least 12 injuries.

    Russia launched early Thursday morning a air strike with cruise and ballistic missiles against a children’s hospital and two schools in kyiv, among other critical structures in and around the Ukrainian cital, and caused the death of at least three people, including a 9-year-old girl. Authorities also recorded a dozen injuries.

    “Tonight Russia has killed a 9-year-old girl, her 34-year-old mother and another 33-year-old woman”, specified the Ukrainian Police. At first it had been reported that the minor victim was 11 years old.

    Russia has repeatedly attacked Kiev with waves of drones and missiles since the start of the invasion, but attacks on the cital have increased significantly in the last month (17 were counted), as Ukraine prepares a counteroffensive.

    As reported by the General Staff of Ukraine, the air force intercepted the 10 projectiles which he identified as short-range Iskander ballistic missiles.

That hpened this morning, when the residue from the devices also caused damage to a police station and several public and private buildings in three different districts of the Ukrainian cital.

    The mayor of kyiv, Vitalii Klitschko, explained that the management of the clinic is being investigated for not having opened the shelter to those who were in the building during the attack.

    After a woman was killed watching an airstrike from her balcony earlier this week, authorities in the cital urged residents to attend to sirens and stay in shelters and other safe places.

    “They have to be vigilant, as ballistic missiles fly at incredible speeds. You only have a few seconds from when the alarm sounds until the arrival of the rocket!” they warned the population in a message.
