Zelensky, the Ukrainian president’s wife, has asked media to tell the horrendous truth that Putin’s troops kill children “consciously and cynically”.

Olena Zelenska posted on Instagram that Russians were killing Ukrainian children ever since Putin invaded Ukraine in February 24.

To’save her children’, she asked Nato to establish a no fly zone above Ukraine.

“The Russian occupiers are murdering Ukrainian children,” she said. Conscientiously, cynically.

Kirill (18 months old) died in Mariupol, after Russian forces attacked Ukraine’s second capital just minutes before an agreed ceasefire.

She wrote: 'When people in Russia say that their troops are not hurting the civilian population, show them these pictures!'

She stated that if Russians say their troops do not harm civilians, they should show these photographs!

“I must tell you about it. Ukraine already has 38 child deaths. 

This could be because of the recent shellings in our peaceful cities.

“Show them these images when Russian soldiers claim they don’t harm the civilian population.”

The 11th day was a terrible day for men, women, and children. Their neighbourhoods were destroyed and they were targeted.

The Red Cross brokered ceasefires in Ukraine and closed humanitarian corridors. According to the UK government, Russia targeted ‘populated areas’ in order to crush the resistance of the Ukrainian population.

This heinous tactic was undisputed last night, despite Putin’s deniations and disinformation emanating from Moscow.

Mrs Zelenska added: ‘Show them the faces of these children who weren’t even given a chance to grow up. To convince Russian soldiers to cease firing and open humanitarian corridors, how many children would need to be killed?

On the 11th day of the conflict, men, women and children were needlessly targeted and their neighbourhoods reduced to ruins. Pictured: The Zelensky family

“We have to build corridors in some of the most crowded cities in Ukraine. There are hundreds of children who die in these basements, without any food or medical attention.

Russian soldiers gun down families trying to escape the buildings. They also shoot volunteers trying to aid.

“I appeal for all impartial media worldwide!

“Tell this horrifying truth: Russian invaders are killing Ukrainian children.

Tell Russian mother’s what your sons do in Ukraine.

“Show these pictures to Russian women! Your husbands, brothers and compatriots are murdering Ukrainian children!”

“Let them know they are responsible personally for every Ukrainian child’s death because they tacitly consented to such crimes.

To NATO countries, close the skies over Ukraine It will save our children tomorrow, so please spare them!
