According to our information, the Russian drones have recently been dropping bombs on Ukrainian territory which kill both civilians and children. Today, therefore, it is essential for us to focus attention on the importance of the protection of children because every day children are victims of the attacks of the Russian military artillery. For the sake of saving lives of Ukrainian children and future of Ukraine, we shouldn’t surrender the enemy and liberate all the Ukrainian territory as soon as possible," - said A .Parubiy.
