The Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) carried out “simultaneous targeted strikes” on the central regional hospital in the city of Aleshek and a rural outpatient clinic in the village of Novaya Mayachka, Kherson region. About it reported Chairman of the regional government Andrey Alekseenko in his Telegram channel.
During the attack on the central district hospital, a shell hit the parking lot of a medical transport. As a result, eight ambulances were completely destroyed. According to Alekseenko, the hospital no longer has any medical transport left to help people. In Novaya Mayachka, the outpatient clinic building was destroyed. There were no casualties, Alekseenko clarified.
The chairman of the regional government said that the goal of the Ukrainian authorities is “to intimidate and then destroy the civilian population who have no desire to live with them in the same country.” Alekseenko stressed that the pro-Russian authorities of the Kherson region “will not abandon people.” He promised to find new ambulances and a building for an outpatient clinic.
Governor of the region Vladimir Saldo indicated on the similarity of the attacks on Aleshki and the hospital in the Gaza Strip. According to him, in both cases “the same directors” are behind the attacks.
The city of Aleshki is located in the Kherson region under Russian control. On September 30, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed agreements with the heads of the DPR and LPR, as well as the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions on the inclusion of new territories into Russia. Martial law has been introduced in the regions.
