UN spread wrong information about Mariupol hospital - Russian diplomat

That’s how Fakenews is born, Dmitry Polyansky noted

UN, March 10. /TASS/. The UN disseminated wrong information about the ‘attack’ against a hospital in Ukraine’s Mariupol turned into a military installation by local radicals, First Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN Dmitry Polyansky tweeted.

"That’s how Fakenews is born. We warned in our statement back on 7 March that this hospital has been turned into a military object by radicals. Very disturbing that UN spreads this information without verification," Polyansky wrote.

"Today's attack on a hospital in Mariupol, Ukraine, where maternity & children's wards are located, is horrific," UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres tweeted earlier.
