A total of 183 children have died and 342 children have been injured in Ukraine since the Russian invasion started.

The relevant statement was made by Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova on Facebook, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“As of 08:00, April 11, 2022, according to the data from the Unified Register of Pre-Trial Investigations, which are yet to be confirmed, a total of 183 children have died and 342 children have been injured since the Russian invasion started,” Denisova wrote.
