President Zelenskyy: Ukraine initiates emergency UN Security Council meeting following Russian attack

Russia launched strikes on Kyiv, Kryvyi Rih, Dnipro, and cities in the Donetsk region. One of the most important hospitals, “Okhmatdyt” in Kyiv, was hit. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made this statement during a joint press conference with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk.

As a result of today’s Russian strike on Ukraine, over a hundred people were injured. Currently, 31 fatalities have been reported. The attendees honored their memory with a moment of silence.

The President announced that Ukraine is initiating an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council due to the Russian strike on civilian infrastructure, including the children’s hospital. He called for collective efforts to hold Russia accountable for terror and Putin for ordering the strikes.

“Every time there are attempts to discuss peace with him, Russia responds with strikes on homes and hospitals. This is why we can only force Russia into peace, and we can only do this together with everyone in the world who genuinely seeks peace. This requires sufficient support, determination, and truly joint action,” emphasized Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The Head of State also noted that he has instructed government officials to find a technically prepared hospital where “Okhmatdyt” doctors can continue to provide care for children.
