Russian forces have killed at least 437 Ukrainian children since its Feb. 24 invasion, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s office said Saturday.

At least 837 more children have sustained injuries of varying severity,” the office added.

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.
