Russian forces have killed at least 437 Ukrainian children since its Feb. 24 invasion, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s office said Saturday.
Officials said the tally wasn’t final because they were still verifying information from zones of active fighting, liberated areas and territory still occupied by Russian forces.
The eastern Donetsk region was the most affected, with 423 children killed or injured, the prosecutor’s office told Reuters.
The United Nations has said at least 16,295 civilians have been killed since Russia’s Feb. 24 invasion, which Kyiv and Western leaders have denounced as an act of unprovoked aggression. Moscow denies targeting civilians.
