KYIV, Ukraine (AA); Ninety-seven children in Ukraine have been killed in attacks by the Russian army, authorities said Tuesday.

The office of the chief prosecutor in Ukraine said more than 100 children have also been injured between Feb. 24 and March 15.

“At least five children die every day under bombardments,” it added.

The Russia-Ukraine war, which began Feb. 24, has drawn international condemnation, led to financial sanctions on Moscow and spurred an exodus of global firms from Russia.

At least 636 civilians have been killed and 1,125 injured in Ukraine since the beginning of the war.

The UN said on Tuesday that the number of refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine has now reached 3 million.

“We have now reached the 3 million refugees and among them 157,000 are third-country nationals,” said International Organization for Migration (IOM) spokesman Paul Dillon at a news briefing in Geneva.

He said at least 1.8 million of the refugees have gone to Poland, 453,000 to Romania, 337,000 Moldova, 263,000 Hungary, and 213,000 to Slovakia. Russia has also received around 143,000 refugees.

Meanwhile, UNICEF spokesperson James Elder said as many as 1.5 million children have also fled Ukraine.
