Children’s hospital in Kyiv hit by missiles as Russia unleashes deadly barrage across Ukraine | World News

A children’s hospital in Kyiv has been hit by missiles as Russia unleashed a deadly barrage across Ukraine.

The attack is the biggest bombardment of the Ukrainian capital for several months, officials said.

At least 20 people have been killed across Ukraine and about 50 others injured, according to the country’s interior ministry.

The daylight attacks included Kinzhal hypersonic missiles, one of the most advanced Russian weapons, the Ukrainian air force said.

The Kinzhal flies at 10 times the speed of sound, making it hard to intercept. City buildings shook from the blasts.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Russia had targeted five cities with more than 40 missiles of different types.

The attack struck Okhmatdyt children’s hospital in Kyiv, Ukraine’s biggest children’s medical facility. There was no immediate word on casualties there.
