In Russia’s grotesque and indiscriminate desire to punish the Ukrainian population, it is often the most vulnerable that pay the price.
Last night, it was Ukrainian children — as they slept.
Three children were killed and another one was injured in a Russian massive missile strike at Ukraine in the middle of the night on April 28.
“Missile strikes killing innocent Ukrainians in their sleep, including a 2-year-old child, is Russia’s response to all peace initiatives,” Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba said in a Tweet.
“The way to peace is to kick Russia out of Ukraine. The way to peace is to arm Ukraine with F-16s and protect children from Russian terror.”
Two 10-year-old boys were killed after a Russian cruise missile struck a residential building in Uman, Cherkasy Oblast.
A three-year-old girl was the victim of Russian aggression after her home was shelled in Dnipro. Her 31-year-old mother also died in the attack.
While authorities in multiple oblasts in Ukraine are still compiling the number of injured, at least one child in Kyiv region was hospitalized.
A 13-year-old girl was taken to Kyiv’s Okhmatdyt Children’s Hospital with injuries after Russian missile fragments hit a high-rise building in the town of Ukrainka in Kyiv Oblast.
Russia launched a massive missile attack on Ukraine overnight on April 28.
In total, air defense forces shot down 21 out of 23 missiles, including 11 outside Kyiv, as well as two drones.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has been charged for war crimes by the International Criminal Court for policies directly targeting Ukrainian children.
