KABUL (Pajhwok): At least 41 Ukrainians have been killed in Russian missile strikes on Kyiv, capital of the embattled Central Asian country, and other cities, a media reports said on Tuesday.

Russia blasted the main children’s hospital in Kyiv with a missile in broad daylight on Monday and rained missiles down on other cities across Ukraine, killing at least 41 civilians in the deadliest wave of air strikes for months, Reuters reported.

Reuters quoted a witness as saying: “”It was scary. I couldn’t breathe. I was trying to cover (my baby). I was trying to cover him with this cloth so that he could breathe.”

President Volodymyr Zelensky, who stopped in Poland before heading off to Washington for a NATO summit, put the death toll at 37, including three children. More than 170 were injured.

Writing on the Telegram messaging app, Zelensky said more than 100 buildings had been damaged, including the children’s hospital and a maternity centre in Kyiv, children’s nurseries and homes.
