Ukrainian Village Mourns as Missile Strike Leaves Children Orphaned

A recent report has highlighted the tragic impact of a Russian missile strike on a small village in the Eastern Hal Region of Ukraine, where over a fifth of the population was killed, leaving many children orphaned. Months after the attack, the surviving children and families are still grappling with the loss and the ever-present threat of the frontline. The village, now referred to as the “village of orphans,” continues to mourn as the war in Ukraine persists, with frequent reminders of the proximity of violence.

  • The UN has documented over 10,000 civilian deaths, including 523 children, since the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, though actual numbers are believed to be higher.
  • The village of Rosar in the Eastern Hal Region lost over 20% of its population in a missile strike last October.
  • Many children orphaned by the attack are struggling, with some sent to safer areas of Ukraine.
  • Valentina, a resident of Rosar, lost her husband, daughter, son, and grandson in the strike, while her grandson Vlad survived.
  • Russia denies targeting civilians, despite evidence of civilian casualties.
  • Residents of Rosar are still grieving, with one man, Valeri, losing four family members and now supporting his daughter’s orphans.
  • The nearby city of Harv is under daily attack, raising fears that the war will come even closer to Rosar.
  • The report underscores the unbreakable bond of family and the resilience of the Ukrainian people amid ongoing conflict.
