Russian attack on children’s hospital horrible -Meloni

Premier Giorgia Meloni’s blasted Russia’s attack on a Kyiv children’s hospital after arriving in Washington overnight for the NATO summit there.

“The images of child cancer sufferers on the streets following the bombing of the children’s hospital in Kyiv seem horrible to me,” Meloni said.

“When the civilian population is attacked like this, vehemently by targeting children, the signals that arrive are decidedly different from those that some of the Russian propaganda would like to convey,” she added, referring to Moscow’s claims to want to reach an agreement for peace.

“My expectation is that NATO, on its 75th anniversary and at a very special moment in history,will send a great message of unity and of adaptability to a world that is changing.

She said Italy was making sure the “necessary attention (is paid) to the Alliance’s southern front, which is currently included in the summit’s conclusions.

“Support for Ukraine is clearly expected too,” she said.
