United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said, on Thursday, that more than 3 million refugees have fled Ukraine since the start of the Russian invasion on February 24.

"More than 3 million Ukrainian refugees have fled their country. The people of Ukraine desperately need peace. And the people around the world demand it," Guterres tweeted.

"Russia must stop this war now," he added.

On Monday, the Ukrainian general prosecutor’s office said that 90 children have been killed and more than 100 wounded in Ukraine since Russia invaded on Feb. 24.

“The highest number of victims were in the Kyiv, Kharkiv, Donetsk, Chernihiv, Sumy, Kherson, Mykolayiv, and Zhytomyr regions,” it said in a statement.

On the other hand, Russia denied targeting civilians in what it called a “special operation” to demilitarise and “deNazify” Ukraine.

On Sunday, two children were killed and two more were wounded in Russia’s shelling of civil infrastructure facilities in the Mykolaiv Region.

Due to bombardments and shelling, 379 educational institutions were damaged, and 59 of them were destroyed completely. Most destructions were reported in the Donetsk Region (119 educational institutions), Mykolaiv Region (30), Sumy Region (28), Kyiv Region (35), Kherson Region (21), and the city of Kyiv (24).
