MOSCOW, 7th October. Russian ministry of foreign affairs made a statement that recent NATO airstrike at Kunduz hospital was a cruel violation of international law.
Saturday, during the special operation against insurgents NATO aviation attacked hospital where more than 80 medics of ´┐ŻDoctors Without Borders´┐Ż international organization and 100 patients were located. The attack left more than 20 killed and more than 40 wounded. As Russian MFA official M.V. Zakharova stated, there were no insurgents inside the hospital.
