Russia is accused of taking women and children hostage
Ukraine accuses Russian troops of taking women and children hostage.
A report issued by the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces says the town of Irpin was left without electricity, water or heating for three days.
It states: “The enemy continues its offensive against Ukraine.
“Since the beginning of the day, the Russian occupier has continued to conduct rocket bombing and artillery attacks on settlements in Ukraine.
“The invaders continue to use the airfield network of the Republic of Belarus to conduct air strikes on Ukraine.
“The occupiers act insidiously, violate the rules of international humanitarian law, shell civilians, ‘green corridors’, take women and children hostage, place equipment, ammunition in residential areas of cities, artificially create a humanitarian crisis in the occupied settlements.”
