A young Ukrainian schoolgirl was reportedly shot dead by Russian troops while trying to escape Kyiv together with her family.
Little Polina, 11, was a cheerful and bubbly young girl who loved watching Harry Potter and attended the 4th grade in a Kyiv school before Putin waged war on Ukraine.
Now, it has emerged that the child was shot dead by Russian forces while trying to escape the capital in a car together with her family.
Sharing her photos on social media, Kyiv’s Deputy Mayor Vladimir Bondarenko wrote:
“Her name was Polina. She studied in the 4th grade of school in Kyiv. This morning on Teligi she and her parents were shot by Russian DRG.”
According to the BBC, the girl suffered fatal gunshot wounds, whereas her younger siblings are still fighting for their lives at a hospital.
Meanwhile, a 6-year-old girl was killed in her apartment after her complex was shelled by the Russians.
When the rescuers arrived at the scene, they desperately tried to save the child to no avail.
Meanwhile, one of the doctors called on an Associated Press photographer at the scene and told him to show pictures of the dead child to Putin.
“Show this to Putin: The eyes of this child, and crying doctors,” the doctor yelled.
As Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky revealed in a recent address to the nation, at least 16 children have so far been killed by Putin’s war. A further 45 or more were left injured after Russians invaded the country and attacked major cities including the capital of Kyiv.
