On the occasion of the International Children's Day in Lviv, the action "Excursion around Lviv that is never going to happen" was held. In the city center, empty school buses lined up on Rynok Square as a reminder of the Ukrainian children killed by the Russian army.

Quote"243 children will never come to Lviv again. Russian invaders kill children, women, and civilians. They must be held accountable for every life taken. Today, the whole world must unite in order to stop these terrible crimes," Mayor Andriy Sadovyi said.

Inside the buses, on the seats, the organizers of the performance placed children's toys and badges with the names of the dead.

According to official data provided by the Office of the Prosecutor General, since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, 243 children have been killed and another 446 injured. The figures are not definitive, as they do not include casualties in places where "active hostilities" are taking place and in settlements occupied by Russian troops.

Meanwhile, UNICEF states that 3 million Ukrainian children are in need of humanitarian assistance within the country, as well as more than 2.2 million in countries hosting refugees.
