Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated that Ukraine had called for an emergency session. Zelensky emphasized the need to hold Russia and Putin accountable for acts of terror, especially in the context of attacks on civilian buildings.

After world leaders and politicians from various countries, including Polish Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski, condemned Russia's attack on a Ukrainian children's hospital, the British ambassador to the UN, Barbara Woodward, also criticized the "cowardly and disgraceful attack" on platform X.

Monday's Russian attacks resulted in the deaths of 36 people, 22 of whom were killed in Kyiv, according to Ukrinform. In Kyiv, a Russian missile struck the country's largest children's hospital, Ochmatdyt, killing two staff members and injuring 16, including seven children. Patients had to be evacuated. Fatalities were also reported in Kryvyi Rih, Dnipro, and Pokrovsk.
