At a press conference Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova added that since February this year about 40 children were killed as a result of Ukrainian shelling.
The diplomat added that in Donetsk a monument to the dead children called The Alley of Angels was unveiled, in which 58 memorial plaques with names of the deceased minors and their years of age have been installed so far.
Zakharova denounced that despite this sad reality the Ukrainian government is still trying to convince Western supporters of the need to increase military supplies, first of all, modern offensive weapons.
“With their help, Kiev hopes, as they say, to win on the battlefield and regain the lost territories. Can you imagine what will happen with the Alley of Angels, so, hypothetically, for a second, if it ends up in the hands of the Kiev regime?” The spokeswoman asked.
Zakharova assured that the first thing that will happen is the destruction with a bulldozer of the monuments to the children, “and this will be done by those who now say that they care about the fate of minors,” she emphasized.
In that sense, she assured that “nobody will let them do it, and I think they know this”.
