UNICEF said nearly 100 children had died in Ukraine in April alone.

But the actual number will be much higher.

UNICEF Secretary-General Omar Abdi said at a UN Security Council meeting:

“It has been exactly one month since Unicep’s last report to this committee on the situation in Ukraine. Day by day more and more Ukrainian children are exposed to the horrors of this war.

“Last month, the United Nations confirmed that nearly 100 children had died, and I think the actual figure is likely to be much higher.
