Ukraine-Russia conflict: Russia accused of bombing maternity hospital, Germany refuses fighter jets
The city official of Mariupol, a southern city in Ukraine, has accused Russia of bombing a maternity hospital. The city council posted a video of the hospital where they accused Russia of dropping several bombs.
In a statement released by the city council, they said, "The destruction is enormous. The building of the medical facility where the children were treated recently is completely destroyed. Information on casualties is being clarified.”
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky condemned the airstrike on a hospital in Mariupol. He said via his Telegram account, "Direct strike of Russian troops at the maternity hospital. People, children are under the wreckage. Atrocity! How much longer will the world be an accomplice ignoring terror?”
The President further accused NATO of not taking any action and not declaring a no-fly zone over Ukraine. He said, "Close the sky right now! Stop the killings! You have power but you seem to be losing humanity,”
As the destruction in Ukraine continues, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Wednesday that Germany will not be sending fighter jets to Ukraine to help in its defense against the Russian invasion. However, Germany has provided humanitarian aid and some weapon equipment to Ukraine.
