Ukraine accuses Russia of ‘genocide’. The Ukrainian government has said that Russian attacks have hit a hospital.
Russia has been accused of “genocide” by the Ukrainian government after a missile strike reportedly damaged a Ukrainian hospital. According to the emergency services a rocket hit the city of Zhytomyr. Two people are reported to have died during the blast.
Missiles are said to have landed around 85 miles west of Kyiv. As reported by The Metro, a medical building suffered from damage and three homes in the residential area caught on fire.
The emergency services in Ukraine have been searching the rubble for survivors.
Russia’s attacks on Ukraine have continued for several days now. The UK has put in place sanctions on Russia.
On Tuesday, March 1, US President Joe Biden told Congress: “Throughout our history we’ve learned this lesson — when dictators do not pay a price for their aggression, they cause more chaos.”
He went on to add: “They keep moving. And the costs and threats to America and the world keep rising.”
President Biden has closed US airspace to planes from Russia. This is expected to further affect Russia’s economy.
