As a result of Russia's armed aggression in Ukraine, at least 464 children were killed as of the morning of March 15, 2023. It is reported by the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine in Telegram.
More than 925 were injured of varying severity. In places of warfare, as well as in temporarily occupied territories, accurate information continues to be established, so the data is not final. Most affected children, according to the Prosecutor General's Office, in Donetsk (446), Kharkov (273) and Kyiv (123) regions.
In addition, the report says that as a result of massive bombing and shelling, 3,126 educational institutions were damaged, 438 of them were completely destroyed.
Since the beginning of the invasion, the Russian Federation has also taken children out of the occupied regions of Ukraine, which violates international agreements. Orphans are taken from the territories of the "DPR" and "LPR" to be transferred to Russian families. In February 2023, it turned out that in Russia there is a network of "re-educating" institutions where Ukrainian children who were taken out during the war are placed. Investigators at the Conflict Observatory at the Yale University Health Institute in the United States said that at least six thousand children passed through such institutions at the bases of holiday camps.
