Pregnant women were forced to seek safety in a bomb shelter attached to a hospital in Kherson, Ukraine, as fighting continued in the area on February 28.
This footage, recorded by Yurii Herman, a doctor at Kherson Regional Clinical Hospital, shows a number of female patients in what he called a bomb shelter at the hospital. Multiple visibly pregnant women can be seen. Herman said the room also held women who’d recently given birth, premature babies, a woman in need of an operation, and children of staff. Herman said two women would soon give birth.
Herman told Storyful that he recorded the video on Monday morning after alarms went off indicating a possible air raid. “We are waiting for peace,” said Herman.
