Russian missile strike on Zaporizhzhia maternity hospital kills newborn baby

The Kremlin has targeted critical energy facilities across Ukraine in recent weeks.

A two-day-old baby died in a Russian strike on a maternity hospital in Vilnyansk in southeastern Ukraine on Wednesday, as Moscow ramped up attacks on civilian infrastructure nationwide.

The newborn child's mother and a doctor were pulled from the rubble of the destroyed medical facility in Zaporizhzhia, as nearby private houses were also damaged in the devastating S-300 missile assault.
