The bombing of a pediatric hospital in the Ukrainian port of Mariupol, besieged by Russian troops, provoked an outcry of global outrage on Thursday.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson denounced an “immoral” attack, which Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy described as a “war crime” committed in that strategic port on the Sea of ​​Azov.

The White House, for its part, lashed out at the “barbaric” use of force against civilians, while the UN and the World Health Organization ( WHO ) called for “the immediate cessation” of the attacks on health facilities.
