Ukraine said this afternoon that Russian forces had struck a children’s hospital in Kyiv with a cruise missile, as part of a nationwide bombardment that killed more than two dozen people.

The Security Services of Ukraine (SBU) said its initial assessment found that Moscow had struck the facility with a KH-101 strategic cruise missile, while a senior presidential official Andriy Yermak said the projectile “contains dozens of microelectronics manufactured in NATO countries”.
