On March 12th, the Russians began chaotically fire at Mykolaiv. The Russians shelled a cancer hospital and an emergency medical station. The hospital’s head doctor, Maksim Beznosenko, said several hundred patients were in the hospital during the attack but that no one was killed. The assault damaged the building and blew out windows. “If Russia sees a cancer patient as an equal opponent, who is a threat, it means Russia is not just sick, it is in agony,” – admitted Beznosenko.
Russian forces have stepped up their attacks on Mykolaiv, located 470 kilometers (292 miles) south of Kyiv, in an attempt to encircle the city.
Russian troops earlier shelled a maternity hospital in the southern city of Mariupol on Wednesday. Three people died in that attack.
