An Important Update From IAB Ukraine's CEO

Dear Colleagues,

As I am writing these lines over Kyiv, the air siren sounds for the fourth time today.

Since 2 o'clock in the morning, we have been attacked by strategic aviation missiles, ballistic and aero ballistic missiles. The most powerful attack occurred from 9:52 and lasted almost two hours.

Kyiv, Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih, and Pokrovsk came under attack.

In Kyiv, the impact destroyed the entrance of a residential building (people still could be heard under the rubble), the 2 upper floors of another, and the key Okhmatdyt hospital (Maternity and childhood) was critically damaged, the children dialysis unit was damaged, and children were under the rubble. Now emergency services are trying to dismantle the rubble, but for the fourth time we hear an alarm, it means that new strokes are possible.

Kids from the oncology ward in masks just sit on the street, waiting to be evacuated to other medical facilities. The doctor who was operating during the alarm was blown away by the blast wave, but fortunately both he and the patient are alive.

Pillars of smoke and fire from fires at the impact point are visible above Kyiv.

Volunteers and emergency services are trying to clear the rubble of hospital in the hope that there are survivors.

As of 12:50 p.m., there AT LEAST are 23 dead and 66 injured across Ukraine

 Kyiv 11 dead and 18 injured.

 Kryvyi Rih 10 dead and 41 injured.

 Dnipro 1 dead and 6 injured.

 Pokrovsk, Donetsk region: 3 dead.

This war continues. This war is much more than a dispute between two countries, it is an ideology and values war. We still need Air Defence systems, missiles, F16 military aircrafts.

For Ukrainians it's not a matter of ambition, it's a matter of survival.

Anastasiya Baydachenko, CEO, IAB Ukraine
