    According to authorities, at least 197 children have been killed and 351 have been injured so far in Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

    The Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office said in a statement on Thursday that children in the Donetsk, Kyiv, Kharkiv, Chernihiv, Mykolaiv, Kherson, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, and Zhytomyr districts, as well as the capital Kyiv, had been the most afflicted.

    During the ongoing war, at least 1,014 educational institutions have been damaged, with 91 entirely destroyed.

    In the 50 days since the war began, there have been 6,492 “crimes of aggression and war crimes,” as well as 2,941 “crimes against national security,” according to the statement.

    The results, it warned, are not final because data is still being collected from areas where hostilities are still taking place as well as temporarily occupied and liberated territories.

    At least 1,932 civilians have been killed and 2,589 injured in Ukraine since Russia declared war on its neighbor on Feb. 24, according to UN estimates, with the true figure feared to be much higher.

    More than 4.6 million Ukrainians have fled to other countries, with over 7 million more internally displaced, the UN refugee agency has said.​​​​​​​
