Ukraine: Russian missile attack kills three in Kyiv on International Children's Day

Guardian, 01 Jun 2023
Three people including a child were killed in an early morning missile attack on Kyiv that hit apartment buildings, two schools and a children's clinic, according to Ukrainian authorities. Most of the damage appeared to be from falling debris after the incoming missiles were intercepted by air defences. The attack, on what is International Children's Day in many post-Soviet countries, hit after only a few minutes' warning. Nearly 500 children have been killed in attacks in Ukraine since the start of Russia's full-scale invasion in February 2022
