According to Kiev officials, 423 children have been killed in Ukraine since the Russian invasion began. The estimate was made by the Ukrainian Attorney General's Office, stating that another 810 were injured. The highest number of victims was recorded in the Donetsk and Kiev regions.
The budget, he added, is not definitive because information is being collected from areas that are still occupied or where fighting is underway. Head of the regional state administration Oleksandr Starukh explaining that there were no casualties, spoke of the destruction of two schools: "Last night the Russian occupier hit a school in the village of Vozdvizhovka with two rockets.
The educational institution was almost completely destroyed. Another rocket hit a local park and private houses. A school in Dobropolye village was also destroyed by rockets."

In the meantime, air alert has been activated throughout Ukraine.
The population invited to go to shelters. This was reported by the Russian news agency Tass citing local Ukrainian media. The authorities in Odessa, Nikolaev, Poltava, as well as in the west of the country, have urged the population to stay in shelters.
For the Kremlin, the objectives of the special military operation in Ukraine do not change, even if NATO assistance in Kiev creates problems. According to US and allied intelligence, Iran is strengthening its commitment to supplying weapons to Russia and plans to send not only attack drones but also Iranian-made missiles to be used against Ukrainian cities.
The increased flow of weapons from Tehran could help offset the huge losses of Russian military equipment since February. Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelensky assured that Russia has already had about 65,000 deaths since the start of the conflict in February.
Men and women who gave their lives for a handful of people in the Kremlin who ignore reality. Zelenski further said that even in the event that deceased Russian citizens rise to 100,000, Russian President Vladimir Putin's entourage would not reflect.
"We are doing what we can to shoot down more enemy missiles and drones and neutralize enemy positions," he said.
