WATCH: Zelenskyy Mocks Putin’s Propaganda; Asks How Hospital Strike Was “Denazification”

Russia and its apologists have insisted that Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine was for the purpose of “peacekeeping” (an argument that former U.S. President Donald Trump has praised as “genius”) or for “denazification.” If that was truly the case, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy asks, what was the purpose of attacking a maternity hospital?

A Newsweek report notes that one Maria Butina has claimed that Zelenskyy is a Nazi himself, and that Russia isn’t actually carrying out air strikes, but that instead, it’s Ukraine’s own government attacking civilians and citizens — a story that might have more value if Butina herself wasn’t a convicted Russian agent.

By contrast, Ukrainian officials are reporting that a Russian airstrike targeted a maternity and children’s hospital in Mariupol, according to the BBC, killing at least three and wounding at least another 17, during an agreed-upon ceasefire and peace talks. Zelenskyy has said that people were trapped under the wreckage.

In a video statement, he addressed the attack, mocking the line of Russian propaganda: “Was it the denazification of the hospital?”

“A children’s hospital. A maternity hospital. What did they threaten the Russian Federation with? What kind ofcountry is this, the Russian Federation, which is afraid of children’s hospitals and maternity hospitals and destroys them..What was that? Was it the denazification of the hospital?”

The World Health Organization has confirmed 24 attacks on hospitals, healthcare workers, and ambulances, according to Wall Street Journal, though Russia has called records of its penchant for targeting medical facilities “figments of the imagination.”
