Broadcasting icon Tony Blackburn took to Twitter today to hit out at the actions of Vladimir Putin and the Russian military after Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky announced that Russia had cruelly bombed a blood bank and that multiple people have been killed in the explosion.
Using his large platform to speak out about the abominable incident, the former BBC Radio 1 DJ condemned the latest of many atrocities carried out by Russia in its ongoing war with Ukraine.
“Unbelievable Russia bombing a blood transfusion centre in Ukrainian,” he told his 115,000 followers.
“How low can you go in this pointless war killing hundreds of innocent people and causing destruction and misery?” he asked.
“I don’t think anyone wants it except the mad Putin and his cronies,” the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star added.

Several people have been killed and more have been injured after Russian forces bombed a blood bank in Ukraine, President Zelensky has claimed.
A Russian-guided aerial bomb reportedly hit the transfusion centre in the town of Kupiansk in the eastern Kharkiv region late on Saturday.
While the report has not yet been independently verified, Zelensky told his Telegram channel “there are dead and wounded” and that rescue workers were extinguishing a fire at the scene of what he described as a “war crime”.
Russia has denied deliberately targeting civilians as part of their full-scale invasion, but thousands have died in the war that has destroyed whole cities.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began last year on February 24, causing widespread outrage around the world.
