Ukraine’s Poroshenko: "242 children killed by Russian aggressors since 2014"

The Russian aggression in eastern Ukraine has claimed lives of 242 children since 2014.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said meeting with participants of the all-Ukrainian rally Children unite Ukraine held in Kyiv today. 

"242 children have been killed by the Russian aggressors since 2014," Poroshenko said, Censor.NET reports citing the video he posted on social media. 

The president also recalled that a great number of children were killed in Syria where the Russian troops are conducting a military operation.

"It is absolutely unacceptable when children get used to hear sounds of Grad rockets. They have already learned to distinguish a 120-mm mortar shelling from a heavy 150-mm howitzer one, and how to survive a bombardment. It is a common knowledge among the children of Avdiivka," Poroshenko said.
