Amid the Russia-Ukraine conflict, numerous empty strollers lined up in the central square of the city of Lviv on Friday to commemorate children killed in the country after the Russian invasion.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered “military action” against Ukraine. Russia has said its operations in Ukraine were special military operations and did not target civilians.
However, these clashes resulted in deaths and destruction of people in the affected areas, including children killed by Russian shelling and bombings.
Reuters news agency reports that a large number of empty strollers were lined up in the central square of Lviv on Friday (March 18) to commemorate the children killed in the country after the Russian invasion.
According to Ukrainian officials, Lviv town hall placed 109 strollers or prams in neat rows – every child killed since the beginning of the war was remembered.
Two teddy bear toys were placed in each blue baby trolley. The little girl sitting on the bench was holding a small Ukrainian flag.
Lviv in western Ukraine has attracted hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians seeking refuge from the war front.
