With its attack on the Okhmatdyt children's hospital, Russia kills those Ukrainian children it cannot abduct, according to Ukraine's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Sergiy Kyslytsya.

“Let us not forget that the pains Russia goes to harm Ukrainian children has been a mainstream aspect of their aggression from the very beginning. The children who Russia cannot abduct and brainwash, Russia kills," wrote Kyslytsya on his X account.

He reminded that Russia is on the "list of shame" for the crimes committed by its armed forces against children.

"Let us not forget that the person sitting today at the head of the table represents a wanted criminal, suspected of crimes against children and subject to arrest under the ICC warrant," added Kyslytsya.
