MoD Russia – May 31, 2022

⚠️Ukrainian armed formations, in violation of the norms and principles of international humanitarian law, continue to deliberately use medical infrastructure for military purposes. At the same time, the nationalists, using civilians as “human shield”, are systematically shelling Russian units, provoking the Russian Armed Forces to retaliate in order to further accuse them of killing civilians and targeting civilian targets indiscriminately.

▫️The Russian Federation’s Joint Co-ordination Headquarters for Humanitarian Response continues to record such criminal actions by the Kiev regime:

🔹in Kharkov, a hospital building (Igor Muratov Street) has firing points on the upper floors and an ammunition depot in the basement, with medical staff and patients forcibly detained in the premises;

🔹in Chasov Yar, Donetsk People’s Republic, wounded Ukrainian nationalist fighters are housed in the buildings of city hospital No 3 (Pirogova Street). Civilians, including the seriously ill, have been forced to leave the medical facility under threat of reprisals, and AFU units have equipped roadblocks and firing points at all approaches to the polyclinic;

🔹in Odessa, nationalists have equipped a stronghold in the building of Hospital No 9 (Pastera Street), with armoured vehicles and artillery placed in the surrounding area;

🔹in Kramatorsk, Donetsk People’s Republic, a stronghold has been placed in Children’s Polyclinic No. 3 (Geroev Ukrainy Street), approaches to the building have been mined and polyclinic staff and patients, including children, are forcibly detained in the basement.

▫️These and other similar facts, despite our repeated statements, have to date been ignored by the World Health Organisation.

❗️Once again, we call on all international organisations, especially the World Health Organisation, to influence official Kiev and take effective measures to prevent the use of medical infrastructure for military purposes.
