He added that "the projectiles and missiles fired by the occupants reached 600 medical institutions ukrainian Some 101 hospitals were completely destroyed and can no longer be rehabilitated".
The Russian army also destroyed 450 pharmacies throughout the country, the Ministry recalled.
"Behind each of these figures is the life of a Ukrainianthe life of someone who did not arrive at the hospital on time, or someone who had nowhere to go, or someone who was not allowed to enter by the Russian military"he underlined in his message.
The Ukrainian Ministry of Health assured that, with these actions, Russia ignores all norms and conventions of international law.
