MARIUPOL, Ukraine (AP) — In the port city of Mariupol, where Ukrainians are trying to fend off a Russian advance, an ambulance raced into a city hospital Sunday. Inside was a 6-year-old girl mortally injured in Russian shelling.

As her mother wept, the girl was raced inside and doctors and nurses huddled around her. One gave her an injection. Another tried to revive her with a defibrillator.

A doctor looked straight at the camera of an Associated Press videojournalist who had been allowed inside. “Show this to Putin,” he said angrily. “The eyes of this child, and crying doctors.” The girl, whose name was not immediately known, could not be saved.
