"They set mines at all entrances to the hospital and are now firing artillery from inside at the Ukrainian army’s positions.

"According to the preliminary data, there are currently over 500 patients in the hospital, almost 100 of them are bedridden. All of them, as well as the hospital staff, are held hostage by the inhumane captors."


Details: Kuleba later clarified that there are 670 people in the hospital. Ukrainian Armed Forces are currently trying to receive more information in order to understand how to free the people.

Kuleba added that in the last few days the hospital became a shelter for the local residents.
