On the night of 27-28 April, Russian occupying troops bombed the military field hospital on the territory of the Azovstal plant in Mariupol, leaving many dead and wounded.

According to Azov Regiment: “All night long the Russians dropped multi-ton bombs capable of breaking through any concrete structures onto the military field hospital on the territory of the Azovstal plant in Mariupol where wounded [Ukrainian] defenders are undergoing treatment. Later, after having already inflicted damage [on the building], they continued to ruthlessly shell the ruins with naval artillery.

Some of the previously wounded soldiers were killed, some were wounded again or concussed.”

Details: The Azov Regiment said that the Russian attack had caused the part of the building where the operating room was located to collapse.

The Azov Regiment also recalled that the Geneva Convention guarantees the protection of stationary and mobile hospitals, which cannot be attacked [under the Convention]. The wounded and the sick should also enjoy protection regardless of whether they are civilian or military.
