Allegedly Russia has bombed a Ukrainian children’s hospital in Mariupol, as reported by among others CNN and BBC.

Why would they do that? Is it simply a mistake? Or what would Putin hope to gain by an action that would presumably be condemned by any and every country in the world?

It seems to increase the chance of NATO actually getting involved, which seems like an escalation no one is comfortable with considering the nukes on both sides. But surely Putin also realizes actions like this make it harder to stand on the sidelines?
