Invading Russian forces have killed 158 children and wounded 254 since the start of the Kremlin’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Ukrainian Ombudswoman Liudmyla Denisova said on April 2.

She referred to data from the Unified Register of Pretrial Investigations as of 0800 April 2, as well as other sources requiring confirmation.

"It's impossible to establish the actual number of dead and wounded children due to the active hostilities being carried out by the invading forces in Ukrainian cities," Denisova said.
