A children’s hospital in Kyiv is damaged and over 50 people are injured as a result of Russian strikes.

A children’s hospital in Ukraine’s capital was damaged in a missile attack, causing at least 51 injuries, according to Kyiv’s mayor. The attack, described as an “enemy attack,” occurred after Ukraine’s air defense systems successfully intercepted 10 ballistic missiles aimed at the capital. However, debris from the intercepted missiles caused damage and injuries in four districts along the Dnipro River. Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko reported that an apartment building and a children’s hospital were among the affected structures. The attack took place at 3 am and marked the second strike on Kyiv in a week, breaking a period of calm. The Kyiv city military administration also reported falling debris and a fire in certain districts. While visiting Washington, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy urged Congress to approve additional aid in the fight against Russia’s invasion. US president Joe Biden warned Republicans of giving Russia a “Christmas gift” if they failed to provide military aid to Zelenskiy. With winter hindering troop movements, air bombardment has become increasingly significant in the war.
