Russian Defence ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov confirmed the incident, accusing the United States, Britain and France of tipping off the rebels about the hospital’s location.

“The blood of our soldiers is on the hands of those who ordered this murder. Those who created, nurtured and armed these beasts in human form and named them the ‘opposition’,” he said.

  1. Wow, the mofos actually shelled a real hospital.
    Strange : it doesn’t look like one of the hundreds pseudo hospital-strikes the White Helmets advertised…
    All my heart with the victims.
    Now it is HIGH TIME the Russian consider to mount the AK-630M2 CIWS on APCs in order to be able to intercept mortar/artillery shells, ATGMs and even if necessary aerial bombs and aircraft. Moreover, the AK-630M2 turret is alike having a double A-10 gun, it’d be like a modern Shilka in much more powerful and could even engage APCs or tanks : even if the armour is too thick, with the totally ridiculous rate of fir, all external systems and optics would be damages, so it’d achieve technical kills.
    Such systems are already on Russian ships, work really great and would be of great use for the army too. Muricans had great results mounting their Phalanx CIWS on trucks. They deployed these on all their bases in Afghanistan thus avoiding to be shelled many times.

    Nevertheless, another breach of war-laws by the terrorists.
    The infamous Jihadi-Julian Roepcke from Bild zeitung even criticizes the fact Russians are furious about this war-crime!

  2. This story sound like a false flag. Why putting a hospital 1km from the frontline and showing the location with drone footage ? The nurse’s families should blame Putin not the rebels for this PR campaign.
