Russian military kill 200 children in Ukraine

A total of 200 children have been killed and 360 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 16, 2022, according to the data from the Unified Register of Pre-Trial Investigations and other sources, which are yet to be confirmed, a total of 200 children have died and 360 children have been injured since the Russian invasion started,” Denisova wrote.

In her words, it is now impossible to determine the actual number of casualties among children, as Russian troops are conducting active hostilities within Ukrainian cities.

A reminder that Ambassador of the European Union to Ukraine Matti Maasikas stated earlier that Russia’s abduction of Ukrainian children and their ‘planned’ adoption by Russian families is “yet another cynical, appalling violation of International Humanitarian Law”.
