Russia’s Dec. 16 mass missile attack killed a one-year-old child in Kryvyi Rih, a city in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, reported the Prosecutor General’s Office. Rescuers retrieved the child’s body from under the rubble of his home overnight on Dec. 17, said Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Governor Valentyn Reznichenko.

According to the Prosecutor General’s Office, four children aged 3-10 years were injured on Dec. 16.

The real number of children killed and injured due to Russia’s war is expected to be higher as the current count does not include casualties in Russian-occupied territories or where hostilities are ongoing.

The Prosecutor General's Office said that 331 children are now considered missing, while 13,613 have been illegally deported to Russia. Russian attacks on Ukraine have also reportedly damaged 3,126 educational facilities and completely destroyed 337.

Ukrainian authorities discovered a room that Russians used to detain and torture children during the occupation of Kherson, Dmytro Lubinets, the Human Rights Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada, said on Dec. 14.
