At least 148 children have been killed in Ukraine since the start of the Russian invasion five weeks ago, the country’s defense ministry said in a tweet on Thursday.
It said that some 1,370 Russian missiles have been fired at Ukraine since the start of the war, adding that Russia has so far “destroyed” 15 Ukrainian airports.
More than 10 million Ukrainians have fled their homes due to the war, the ministry’s tweet also stated.
