Was video footage of an artillery attack of a hospital taken in Ukraine during the 2022 Russia-Ukraine conflict? Yes, but some of the details have been muddled: The Facebook post incorrectly suggested that the incident happened in Kyiv (spelled Kiev in the post), Ukraine's capital city, and that the incident occurred later than it did. The footage actually shows a hospital in another Ukrainian city being attacked by Russian forces.
The claim appeared in a Facebook post (archived here) on March 4, 2022. It showed a video without audio of a building being hit with artillery. The caption of the post read:

The video was actually taken on February 25, 2022, earlier than the post indicated. However, the attack was still a part of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which began in late February 2022. The building in the video was a hospital in Melitopol, a city in southeastern Ukraine that is almost 10 hours away from Kyiv by car. Additional footage of the heavy artillery -- now verified by other reports of the incident such as The Washington Post article linked above -- can be found here.
In a Facebook post (archived here) published on February 25, 2022, Ukrainian Health Minister Viktor Liashko confirmed that the hospital was attacked. However, he said that patients and medical staff were not injured. His post is also embedded below:
