Russia troops seize psychiatric hospital near Kyiv, governor says

The governor of Kyiv says Russian forces have taken over a psychiatric hospital with 670 people inside, in the town of Borodyanka near Ukraine’s capital, Sky News reports.

“Today we do not understand how to evacuate these people, how to help them,” Oleksiy Kuleba says.

“They are running out of water and medicines. These are people with certain special needs, they need constant help… many of them have been bedridden for years,” he adds according to Sky.

Borodyanka was heavily shelled by the invading Russian army last week.
