Zakharova: Kyiv uses civilian institutions for military purposes

The spokesperson of the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized that the country did not attack the children's hospital in Kiev, but rather a Ukrainian air defense missile hit it.

Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, confirmed that the forces of Kiev deliberately hide behind civilians, use them as human shields and use civilian institutions for military purposes, and this is a violation of international law.

According to the RT report, Zakharova said in a post published on the page of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia: The attempts of the Zelenskyi regime to use the children’s hospital disaster in Kiev as propaganda once again confirms its Nazi and inhumane nature. The Kiev regime is ready. Committing any crime. They are indifferent to the fate and lives of its citizens, including children.

Zakharova explained: On July 8, in response to the Ukrainian army’s attempts to hit Russian economic institutions, Russian forces responded with highly accurate weapons, and military targets in Ukraine such as Artem and Antonov factories, Lukh factory and… targeted

One of the rockets of the NASAMS Western Air Defense System hit a building in the territory of the Okhmetdet Children’s Hospital in Kyiv.

They immediately rushed to accuse Russia of killing civilians and children, the Russian official said, without mentioning that in addition to the children’s hospital and civilian institutions, there are military complexes affiliated with the Ministry of Defense and ammunition and weapons depots.
