Since the beginning of the large-scale Russian invasion, almost 43,000 newborns have been registered across Ukraine.
That’s according to the press service of the Ministry of Justice, Ukrinform reports.
"Over the 78 days of a large-scale war in Ukraine, almost 43,000 newborns were registered," the statement said.
It is specified that the data is provided for the period from February 24 to May 12. A total of 42,723 newborns were registered.
The Ministry of Justice notes that the newborns can be registered in any areas where no active hostilities are underway.
As reported, Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 24 declared war on Ukraine and launched a large-scale invasion, branding it a “special military operation.”
Russian troops have been destroying Ukrainian infrastructure, massively shelling residential areas of Ukrainian cities and towns using artillery, MLR systems, and ballistic missiles.
Martial law was imposed in Ukraine.
