Some 347 children have been killed and 648 wounded since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office said in a Telegram post on July 10.

The office stressed that these figures are far from final, as more reports are coming from areas of ongoing hostilities, the temporarily occupied and liberated territories.

In particular, 348 children have been casualties in Donetsk Oblast, 187 in Kharkiv Oblast, 116 in Kyiv Oblast, 68 in Chernihiv Oblast, 61 in Luhansk Oblast, 53 in Mykolayiv Oblast, 52 in Kherson Oblast, and 31 in Zaporizhzhya Oblast.
