The video shows the apocalyptic scene of the charred hospital with the building destroyed and debris spread across the ground.

Burning cars can be seen outside the damaged hospital while terrified staff and patients were pictured rushing out of the building.

According to regional governor Pavlo Kyrylenko the attack was carried out during an agreed ceasefire period that was meant to allow the evacuation of civilians.

The Ukrainian President claimed children were left buried under the rubble and branded the attack an “atrocity”.

Zelensky shared a clip of the scene inside the hospital and urged the West to impose a no-fly zone over Ukraine.

He said: “Direct strike of Russian troops at the maternity hospital. People, children are under the wreckage. Atrocity!

“How much longer will the world be an accomplice ignoring terror? Close the sky right now! Stop the killings! You have power but you seem to be losing humanity.”

It comes after an eight-year-old girl died of dehydration yesterday after Russian attacks left her without access to water, power, or heating.

The little girl known as Tanya died in Mariupol after her mother was killed in Russian shelling.

A Red Cross aid mission was allegedly hit by a Russian bomb in the city, amid reports victims of shelling are being buried in mass graves.

Two bombs were dropped in the attack on the International and the Ukrainian Committees of the Red Cross, according to unverified reports.

The Red Cross described conditions inside the city “apocalyptic”, with residents sheltering underground from relentless bombardment.

Despite Russian and Ukrainian officials agreeing to establish “humanitarian corridors” to allow civilians out of some cities, Russia has been accused of shelling evacuation routes.

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said Russia had breached the ceasefire and accused it of holding thousands hostage.

It comes as…

“Russia continues holding hostage over 400,000 people in Mariupol, blocks humanitarian aid and evacuation.

“Indiscriminate shelling continues,” he tweeted.

“Almost 3,000 newborn babies lack medicine and food.”

Mariupol’s deputy mayor said 1,170 civilians have been killed in the city since the start of the Russian invasion.

Serhiy Orlov was quoted as saying: “At least 1,170 people have been killed and 47 were buried in a mass grave today.

“People are without water, heat, electricity, gas, residents are melting snow to drink.”
