Over 100 children have been killed since the Russian attack on Ukraine began, according to Kiev.

“Today, a tragic bloody line was crossed,” the Ukrainian Defence Ministry tweeted on Wednesday, referring to the figure.

“Russia will be held to account and will pay for everything,” the ministry said.

Ukraine’s prosecutor general later said that 103 children had been confirmed dead so far and another 100 were wounded.

“The invaders are killing at least five children every day,” Iryna Venediktova, member of the Parliament of Ukraine wrote in a Facebook post.

She added that the numbers were not complete as authorities did not have access to information in contested areas.

Around 400 school buildings and teaching facilities were attacked and about 60 were completely destroyed, Venediktova said, calling on the UN to investigate.
