A Russian missile killed a 1.5-year-old and his parents during a nationwide missile strike on Dec. 16, Darya Herasimchuk, a presidential advisor in charge of children's rights, reported.

The strike also killed a 64-year-old woman. Herasimchuk said that 13 people, including four children, had been injured.
