The strike “leaved 14 patients and medical personnel dead and 24 injured,” she said.
The doctors of the establishment had been providing “for several months medical assistance to the civilian population, as to the military”, according to the same source.
“An intentional strike against a known civilian medical facility arguably constitutes a serious war crime of the kyiv regime,” the statement added.
