Vladimir Putin’s advancing forces dropped bombs on newborn babies who cowered in the basement of a hospital alongside brave nurses, it has been reported.

Newborns, some only hours old, were rushed from the neonatal unit at Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Children’s Hospital in Dnipro, to the basement to shelter from bombs.

Dr Denis Surkov, 51, chief of the neonatal unit told The Sun: “This is the neonatal intensive care unit. In a bomb ­shelter. Can you imagine? This is our reality.”

Dnipro was one of several cities bombed yesterday (February 24).

Following reports of attacks on ­kindergartens and orphanages, Ukraine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba accused Russian troops of “war crimes.”

Sharing the footage, Ukrainian journalist Christo Grozev said on Twitter: “Terrible.”
