Russia has killed at least 71 Ukrainian children and wounded more than 100 since it started its invasion of Ukraine last Thursday, February 24. This was reported by the Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights, Lyudmyla Denisova, through her Telegram channel.

“For Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine, the atrocities of Russian militants, and the violation of all Geneva conventions, Ukraine is paying an exorbitant price — the lives of its children, the future of our people,” Denisova said in this regard.

According to her statement, at least 6 children have been killed in recent hours as a result of Russian shelling of markets and residences in different Ukrainian cities, including a 10-year-old girl who was “severely wounded” in Kyiv and a 5-year-old boy in the Kharkiv region.

Denisova called on NATO allies to help in “stopping Russia’s terrorism” and insisted on “closing the skies” over Ukraine.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, from its Committee on the Rights of the Child, issued a statement last Friday when 19 children were reported killed by Vladimir Putin’s army, demanding the Russian Federation to “immediately cease its aggression and military actions and uphold its obligations to protect children from physical and psychological violence.”
