These data are not final, as it is impossible to inspect the sites of shelling in areas of active hostilities and in the temporarily occupied territories.

145 children died as a result of the Russian war in Ukraine.

This is the data as of the morning of March 30, 2022.

It is also known that another 210 children died during the siege of Mariupol as of March 27, 2022.

The bombing and shelling damaged 790 educational institutions. 75 of them were completely destroyed. The worst situation is in Donetsk, Kharkiv, Mykolaiv, Sumy, Kyiv, Kherson, Chernihiv regions and the city of Kyiv.
