Jun 23, 2023

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has approved the decision to add the Russian armed forces to the global list of persistent violators contained in the report "Children and Armed Conflict" for killing and maiming children and attacking schools and hospitals.


This was reported by Ukrinform with reference to Reuters.

Also, the head of the Presidential Office, Andriy Yermak, announced this in his Telegram.

"The UN has put Russia on the list of shame for killing children in Ukraine," he wrote.

According to the UN, Yermak noted that in 2022, Russia killed 136 children, injured 518 children, carried out 480 attacks on schools and hospitals, and used 91 children as human shields.

"I would like to note that Russia is abducting Ukrainian children and continues to kill them in 2023. Putin is a war criminal, as well as his entire entourage, including terrorists, commanders, and executors of criminal orders," Yermak emphasized.
