Missile hail in Kupyansk: Russian rockets destroy transfusion center

Shock in the heart of Kupyansk: missile hits life-saving center, leaving victims and chaos.

A blood transfusion center was hit by a guided bomb in Hromada Kupyansk in the Kharkiv region. According to President Volodymyr Selenskyy, whose statements Ukrainska Pravda quotes, this attack caused deaths and injuries.

Ukrainska Pravda further reports that after this attack, rescue workers were deployed to fight the resulting fire. Selenskyj strongly condemns the attack and sees it as another example of Russian aggression. He describes the attackers as “beasts” who destroy everything that allows people to live. For the president, defeating these “terrorists” is not only a necessity, but also a matter of honor for anyone who values life, according to Ukrainska Pravda.

The attack on civilian facilities such as the blood transfusion center underscores the intensity and character of the current conflict, in which, as Ukrainska Pravda points out, even places that directly serve life are not safe.
