As a result of Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine, 504 children have been killed and 1,123 injured, the Prosecutor General's Office reported on Sept. 15, citing juvenile prosecutors.
The report stressed that these figures are not final as work to collect data in the areas of hostilities and in both occupied and liberated territories continues.
