The second pregnant woman has already given birth to girls
Photos of the destroyed building in the besieged city on the Sea of Azov also showed a second pregnant woman in polka-dotted pajamas running to safety. This woman has now given birth to a girl, as various media unanimously report.
Russia had accused the Ukrainians of provocation. The attacked building was no longer used as a maternity hospital, but was recently used as a camp for ultra-radical fighters from the Ukrainian Azov battalion, Moscow said. The United Nations also disagreed. Pro-Russian netizens described the photographed pregnant women, one of whom worked as a beauty blogger, as actresses.
