Russian troops have attacked a Red Cross facility in the besieged southern Ukrainian port city of Mariupol, in what constitutes “one of the worst war crimes”, according to the Kyiv Post.

According to Lyudmyla Denisova, Ukraine’s human rights commissioner,
invaders and enemy planes aimed at the building. He continued: “The artillery shelled a building marked with a red cross on a white background, indicating the presence of injured cargo, civilian or humanitarian.”

Ms Denisova could not confirm whether the victim was hit or not but said the incident constituted a war crime and was a “gross violation of the 1949 Geneva conventions.”
