Kremlin 'categorically' denies 'accusations of strike' on hospital in Kyiv

Russia "categorically" rejects accusations of a strike on a hospital in Kyiv, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press briefing in Moscow, Peskov emphasized that the Russian military targets only military objects with high-precision weapons to avoid civilian casualties.

"We do not strike civilian targets. The strikes are carried out on critical infrastructure facilities, on military targets, one way or another related to the military potential of the Kyiv regime," he stressed.

The official pointed out that the Russian Defense Ministry commented on the situation in detail, explaining that the hospital was hit by the fall of an antimissile shell.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy accused Russia on Monday of striking a children's hospital in Kyiv.

In response, the Russian Defense Ministry claimed that numerous photos and video footage from Kyiv "unequivocally" demonstrate the damage was caused by the fall of a Ukrainian air defense missile launched from an anti-aircraft missile system in the city.
