"Over five years of war in Donbas [eastern Ukraine], Russian invaders have killed more than 240 Ukrainian children. Another 56 children went missing. Armed forces' units of the aggressor state destroyed more than 700 schools using proscribed artillery systems and tanks. About 15,000 minors are constantly in danger and fear of shelling from the Russian proxy forces. The psychological traumas they get now will forever remain in their lives," the Ukrainian Naval Forces' press service said in a statement on June 1.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukraine on June 1 marks International Children's Day.
