A march of Ukrainian mothers to the Children's Day will take place in Zurich

In the Swiss city of Zurich, the March of Ukrainian Mothers to the Children's Day was announced with a call to save young Ukrainians.


June 1 is International Children's Day.

During the year, on June 1, the first International Children's Day was held. Since then, this holiday began to be celebrated annually.


Today, in 2022, a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine affected at least 682 children, 242 of whom died. Data from the temporarily occupied territories are missing, as well as data on the exact number of orphans, because this number is growing every day ...
