The Kudrin family of Kyiv — father Anton, mother Svetlana, their two daughters, Polina, 10, and Sofia, 14, and five-year-old son Semyon — were desperately trying to flee from the carnage exploding all around them.

Lovely Polina, her whole life ahead of her, and her parents died in a fusillade of Russian gunfire that ripped through the car.

Little Semyon and his older sister Sofia were rushed to Okhmatdyt children’s hospital in critical condition.

Now, Semyon has died.

His sister Sofia, 13, remains unconscious and in critical condition.

Innocent, terrified people murdered to satisfy a madman’s psychotic lust for power.

This was just one atrocious war crime among many committed every day by Putin’s army.

More than 2,000 Ukrainian civilians, including dozens of children, have been murdered in the invasion so far as Putin targets hospitals, kindergartens and homes.
