Following the devastating missile strike on a children's hospital building in the capital Kiev, the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice has published evidence of a Russian missile. More than 30 fragments of a Kh-101 were found.

"Specific design features of the debris found and corresponding typical markings testify to the use of a strategic cruise missile of the Kh-101 type," said Deputy Minister of Justice Andriy Haychenko according to a statement.

Such missiles have a warhead weighing around 400 kilograms and a range of up to 5,000 kilometers. More than 30 fragments of the missile were found, including parts of the engine and wings.

On Monday, a missile hit a two-storey building on the grounds of the "Okhmatdyt" children's hospital in Kiev. Two adults, including a doctor, were killed. Over 30 people, including at least 8 children, were injured. More than 30 civilians were killed in the three-million-strong city in the heaviest rocket attack on targets in the capital since the beginning of the year.

Ukraine has been fending off a Russian invasion for over two years. Russian missile and drone attacks regularly hit civilian objects. Kiev repeatedly urges its Western allies to supply more powerful air defense systems.
