Source: Pavlo Kyrylenko «”The Russian occupiers have taken doctors and patients hostage. This was the news that one of the hospital’s employees has managed to pass on.

Next came a quote: “It is impossible to get out of the hospital. They are shooting heavily, and we are sitting in the basement. Cars have been unable to get to the hospital for two days. There are multi-storey buildings burning all around… 400 people from neighbouring houses were forced to come to our hospital by Russians. We are not allowed to leave”.”

Kyrylenko appealed to international human rights organisations to respond to these “malicious violations of the norms and customs of war, these flagrant crimes against humanity”.
