Russia-Ukraine War: Hospitals came under fire overnight in the port city of Mykolaiv.

Mykolaiv, Ukraine: A cancer treatment centre and an eye clinic were among the hospitals under attack in Mykolaiv, according to AFP.

Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy had their windows blown out and their doors damaged at the facility.

Dmytro Lagochev, the hospital's head, said: "They fired at civilian areas without any military objective."

"There's a hospital here, an orphanage and an ophthalmological clinic," he added

He said there were no patients or healthcare workers in the cancer treatment centre at the time of the strikes, but unspecified numbers of patients were in the eye clinic.

"We all spent the night in the cellar, everyone was shaking. The patients were terrified," said the clinic's chief, Kasimira Rilkova..

Thousands of people have been forced to flee the Ingulski neighbourhood because there is no heating.
