School buses honor Ukrainian children killed in war

STORY: Stuffed toys and badges with children’s names were placed on some of the seats, a commemorative event to mark Children's Day, organised by Lviv's authorities.

"We are raising awareness so that the world will see it and stop any cooperation with Russia, so that everyone will understand that it Russia is a terrorist state, that they Russians deliberately carry out the genocide of the Ukrainian people, Ukrainian children," Lviv's mayor Andriy Sadovyi said.

Ukraine has accused Russia of atrocities and brutality against civilians during the invasion and on Tuesday (May 31) said it had identified more than 600 Russian war crime suspects and started prosecuting around 80 of them.

Russia has denied targeting civilians or involvement in war crimes and accused Kyiv of staging them to smear its forces.
