Tragic photos show Ukrainian children killed in Russian attacks


Heartbreaking images emerged on Sunday of some of the youngest victims killed in Russia’s war against Ukraine.

Among the heartbreaking photos from the Ukrainian city of Mariupol in the Donetsk region was a photo of paramedic Oleksandr Konovalov unsuccessfully performing CPR on a baby girl brought to the city hospital after being injured in the of a Russian attack on civilians. Beside her, a blood-covered adult crouches in agony.

Other photos show the girl inside a hospital in Mariupol, where she is surrounded by a team of adults desperately trying to save her young life.

She tragically became one of 16 children who have been killed so far in the war, Health Minister Viktor Lyashko said, according to the Kyiv Independent.

Another photo captured survivors, including a woman holding her child and pet dog in her hands as they crowd into a shelter in Mariupol to avoid street fights and clashes taking place in the city.

Lyashko called Russian troops “terrorists” for targeting civilians, and President Volodymyr Zelensky said Russians should be tried for committing international war crimes.

Oleksandr Konovalov tried to resuscitate the girl, but she later died.
