“Two of the injured are in a serious condition, 12 people are in a not so serious condition and the rest have minor injuriesLukasuk added.

It was a ballistic missile that hit Hospital No.14 in the city of Dnipropetrovsk, which was partially destroyed, Lukaszuk said.

“Russia targets civilians”

The adviser to the president of Ukraine, Michael Podoliak characterized the attack “intended for political purposes”adding that in this way Russia proves that targets civilians.

“This is absolutely clear evidence that Russia has changed its missile attack tactics in the first place. Now he is mainly hitting civilians — deliberately in facilities like the hospital in Dnipro, with the aim of causing a psychological (hit) and obviously killing as many people as possible.” Podoliak said in an interview with CNN Senior International Correspondent Fred Pleitgen.

He added that similar attacks have hit residential areas and places such as hospitals and schools in recent months. Specifically in the regions of southern Kherson and eastern Kharkiv, Podoliak said that Russia is destroying “inhabited areas every day with artillery, in the same way.”

“It seems to me that it is time to stop expecting Russia to behave conventionally, as a country that follows some rules imposed by international law or some conventions. No, he is waging war on the civilian population as ostentatiously as possible.” Podoliak said, noting that these attacks represent war crimes.
