Greece condemns Russian missile attack on children’s hospital in Ukraine


Greece’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued an announcement condemning Russia’s missile attack on numerous Ukrainian cities.

“Greece strongly condemns today’s missile attacks by Russia in several Ukrainian cities, especially on Kyiv’s Okhmatdyt children’s hospital.

The attacks which resulted in numerous dead and wounded civilians constitute another grave violation of international humanitarian law,” read the announcement. “Greece will continue to support Ukraine and stand by its people,” it concluded.

According to Ekathimerini, the Russian missile attack on Monday morning killed at least 36 people and injured more than 150 others throughout Ukraine.

According to Ukrainian officials, one of the Russian missiles targeted Kyiv’s Okhmatdyt Children’s Hospital, leading President Zelesnky to convene an emergency UN Security Council meeting.

Moscow has denied striking the children’s hospital, claiming it was hit by a Ukrainian air defense missile.
