The Donbass Arena and Indoor Market areas were hit several times during the day. The Olympic Stadium, Hotel Victoria, campus, dormitory, kindergarten, and residential buildings were also damaged. Fires broke out in the city. And at night, several Grad shells exploded on the territory of the Kalinin hospital, which is also located in the central part of Donetsk.
– There was an “arrival” of two “Grad” missiles in two buildings: neurosurgical and clinical-diagnostic. In the neurosurgery room, a projectile hit the rooms. We have two victims. One is in intensive care, the other was treated on the spot. All the patients on the floors go down to the basement. Psychologists come to help. The patients are scared, – the DPR Minister of Health Dmitry Gartsev, who arrived at the scene of the shelling, told the “RG” correspondent.
The building of the hospital building was seriously damaged. At least three cameras on the second floor are practically destroyed. Hospital staff reported that the second shell struck the roof of another building and there were no casualties. A crater is also seen in the asphalt near the neurosurgery building. The asphalt is broken and on the hospital fence. The area near the neurosurgery building is littered with debris, splinters, and broken glass. Nearby are pieces of twisted metal, possibly shell fragments.
Unfortunately, it later became known that a man died as a result of the bombing of the hospital. “The patient, who was seriously injured (cranioencephalic and chest injuries), died during the shelling of the building No. 6 of the Kalinin hospital. I offer my sincere condolences to the relatives and relatives of the deceased,” Denis Pushilin, acting head of the dpr. , said.
