Kyiv police are investigating the incident after discovering details of the alleged poisoning while monitoring social media. Since two of those affected are police officers, as described by Terekhova, it is not yet clear what evidence the police currently have to work with.

Poisonings Reported on Site of Ohmatdyt Children’s Hospital – Speculation Mounts

A volunteer says she and several others fell ill after drinking from bottled water brought to the scene of the July 8 missile strike

A case of apparent poisonings at the location of the partially destroyed Ohmatdyt children’s hospital in Kyiv has sparked speculation on social media.

A volunteer reported late at night on Monday, July 8, that she and two police officers fell ill after drinking from bottled water apparently brought to the scene by unidentified individuals.

Following the missile strike, a large crowd had gathered at the hospital to assist rescuers in clearing the rubble. Volunteers and local residents rushed to bring water and food to help anyone who might need it.

Volunteer Kateryna Terekhova shared a video on social media in which she claimed that “poisoned water in an Auchan bottle” had been left at the hospital. According to Terekhova, those who drank or even washed their faces with the water fell ill.

“Many people from Kyiv brought a lot of water to Okhmatdyt… Just as we were leaving, the police approached us. We mentioned that we had left some water on the table for them. Moments later, the police called us and said ‘What kind of water did you leave? You can see my face now. It is red. We all have chemical poisoning’,” Terekhova explained in her video.
