Indonesia Denounces Russia's Strike on Ukrainian Children's Hospital

Sedang Trending 1 minggu yang lalu

TEMPO.CO, JakartaIndonesia strongly condemned Russia’s recent attacks on civilian facilities in Ukraine, including a children's hospital, which killed dozens of civilians. The Foreign Ministry issued an official statement on Thursday, July 11, highlighting these attacks as violations of international law.

“Indonesia strongly condemns the attacks on civilian facilities in Ukraine, including a children's hospital, which resulted in civilian casualties,” the ministry said on social media X.

Ukraine observed a national day of mourning on July 9 for the 44 civilians, including four children and two people at the Okhmatdyt Hospital, killed in Russian airstrikes on July 8. The Okhmatdyt Hospital is the largest children's hospital in Ukraine.

The UN Human Rights Mission on Tuesday, July 9, said there was a "high likelihood" that Kyiv's main children's hospital took a direct hit from a Russian missile during a series of airstrikes on Kyiv, Kryvyi Rih, and other cities in Ukraine.

“Analysis of the video footage and an assessment made at the incident site indicates a high likelihood that the children's hospital suffered a direct hit rather than receiving damage due to an intercepted weapon system,” said Danielle Bell, head of the U.N. Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine.

Ukraine's security service said it had unequivocal evidence the medical facility was hit by a Russian Kh-101 cruise missile during the deadliest series of strikes in months, and published images of what it said were fragments of the weapon's engine.

Russia denies responsibility, claiming that without providing evidence, the damage resulted from Ukrainian anti-missile fire, not Russia.

Indonesian Foreign Affairs Ministry considered the attacks as a violation of international law. “There are rules in war. Indonesia urges peace efforts to continue so that the war in Ukraine can be stopped.”
