US Deputy Secretary of State “horrified” by “credible reports” of Mariupol hospital strike

Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said Wednesday that she is “horrified, outraged, and heartbroken by credible reports that a Russian airstrike destroyed a maternity and children’s hospital in Mariupol.”

How much more devastation will Putin’s senseless war of choice bring to the people of Ukraine? He must stop these heinous acts now,” Sherman tweeted.

Although Sherman does not say the US has itself determined Russia was behind the strike, it is significant that she calls the reports “credible” and they are the strongest condemnation so far from a US official.
