Three children, their parents killed in Russian airstrike on dormitory in Chernihiv

Russian enemy airstrike on a dormitory in Chernihiv killed three children and their parents.

“When dismantling building construction, rescuers removed a killed family of five people: three children, a boy and a girl, 3-year-old twins, 12-year-old sister, and their parents. All of them were killed as a result of an enemy air strike on a dormitory," the State Emergency Service of Ukraine posted on Facebook.

As Vyacheslav Chaus, Head of the Chernihiv Regional Military Administration posted on Telegram, the enemy continues launching systematic artillery and air strikes of the regional center, destroying civilian infrastructure. Just yesterday, the city's mortuary received 53 bodies of Ukrainian citizens who were killed by the Russian aggressor, "and for each of our citizens, we will take revenge and kill."

On February 24, Russian president Vladimir Putin announced the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine. Russian troops destroy key infrastructure, massively shell residential areas of Ukrainian cities and villages using artillery, multiple launch rocket systems, and ballistic missiles.

Martial law was imposed in Ukraine and general mobilization was announced. Ukraine repels Russian invaders.
