At least 14,400 Russian soldiers have been killed since the start of the war on February 24, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense announced on Saturday.
In a statement, the ministry added that 1,470 armored vehicles have been destroyed.
The 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.
The Ukrainian prosecutor general’s office said on Saturday that 112 children have been killed so far in the war in Ukraine.
It also said on Telegram that 140 children had been wounded.
“The highest number of victims are 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 calls a “special operation” to emilitarize and “deNazify” Ukraine.
Yesterday, two children were killed and two more were wounded in Russia’s shelling on 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).
The final data has yet to be reported, as it is impossible to inspect certain areas where active hostilities are underway.
