Russia kills one Ukrainian child every six hours
According to official statistics, Russia kills one Ukrainian child every six hours. Every three hours, Russians injure one little Ukrainian.
“Unspeakably tragic: the Russian army deliberately chooses our children as the target of their bloody plans. Monsters kidnap children and use them as human shields to ‘protect’ their killing columns. This became known from the inhabitants of villages in Chernihiv region. Such atrocities are also recorded in Sumy, Kyiv, and Zaporizhzhia regions,” Mykola Kuleba, Commissioner of the President of Ukraine for Children’s Rights, posted on Facebook.
He mentioned the tragedy that had occurred on April 1, 2022, in Hostomel, Kyiv region. The invaders shot a car with a woman and a child, killing the mother. As a result of Russia’s shelling with phosphorus munitions, 11 people were injured, including 5 children, in Marinka, Novomykhailivka, and Krasnohorivka, Donetsk region.
“Meanwhile, the country’s most tragic counter is ruthless: 153 children killed and 245 injured. These data do not take into account 210 children who died at the hands of the occupiers in the besieged Mariupol,” the Commissioner noted.
