Apr 1, 2023

In Bucha and the Bucha district of Kyiv region, 89 Ukrainian children suffered during the Russian occupation, 37 of whom died.


This was reported by First Lady Olena Zelenska, speaking on March 31 in Bucha at the second international conference United for Justice, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"In Bucha and the Bucha district alone, 89 children were injured, 37 of whom were killed, and almost half, 52, received varying degrees of injuries. According to official figures, Russians have killed 466 children in Ukraine. And these are definitely not all of our victims, because we don't know exactly what is happening in the occupied territories," she said.

The First Lady also noted that the occupiers have abducted and taken more than 19,000 children to Russia.

"Ukraine is currently working hard to return them, but we have managed to return only 327 children," Zelenska said.

According to her, every Ukrainian during the year of war "carries his or her own Bucha".

"That is why we are launching an all-Ukrainian mental health program, and these days its communication campaign with the slogan "Are you okay?" is starting. To survive this, we need to talk about it," the first lady said.
