“June 1 has always been a day of warmth, joy, and children’s smiles. #Russia has overshadowed this day with war. Russia is stealing the childhood of our children. It wants to destroy our future. But we are fighting back and we will defend every Ukrainian child. For the future of Ukraine, for a peaceful sky and a happy childhood,” President Zelensky wrote on his Telegram channel.
