Marianna Vyshgerskaya, a Ukrainian woman, confirmed the accuracy of charges made by Western media, claiming she was a victim of a Russian bombing of a maternity hospital in Mariupol, Ukraine.
Vyshgerskaya said in a video interview that the hospital was hit by artillery rather than an air strike, stressing that Ukrainian troops were stationed in maternity hospitals and that journalists, including an Associated Press photographer, arrived on the scene quickly.
She went on to say that ultranationalists in Ukraine had stolen meals from pregnant ladies and turned the medical centre into a militant base.
Moscow was accused of perpetrating a war crime in the alleged bombing of the aforementioned hospital by Western countries and human rights organisations, although the Russian army denied any strike against the hospital.
"The alleged air attack is a meticulously staged act designed to maintain anti-Russian sentiment in Western public opinion," the Russian military claimed.
