Empty baby strollers have filled a square in Lviv on Friday to remember 109 Ukrainian children who perished after Russia invaded Ukraine.
Rows and rows of baby that line up the usually busy place come as a stark reminder of the human cost of Russian actions.
‘Empty prams on Rynok Square today symbolize the lives of little angels. They are now defending Ukraine’s sky in place where decisive actions of the world should come. This is a terrible price of war that Ukraine is paying today. This is a terrible price of war that Ukraine is paying today. We call on all adults around the world to stand as one shield to protect Ukrainian children and give them future.’, Lviv mayor Andrii Sadovyi wrote in a social media statement.
People are encouraged to put pressure on their governments to make them ‘close the sky’ over Ukraine, said Sadovyi. What can help is spreading the word about Russian war crimes on social media where the campaign comes with the hashtag #closethesky.
