Ukraine – France strongly condemns massive Russian missile strikes (8 July 2024)


France strongly condemns this morning’s massive Russian missile strikes against a number of civilian targets in Ukraine, including the Okhmatdyt Children’s Hospital in Kyiv, leaving more than 20 dead and 40 wounded, according to current information.

These barbaric actions – the direct, deliberate attack on a children’s hospital – must be added to the list of war crimes for which Russia must be held accountable.

This attack tragically reminds us of the reasons for continuing and scaling up our support for Ukraine. As the European leaders reiterated at the June 27th Council of Europe meeting, Russia cannot and must not win this war.
