War in Ukraine: Memorial for Killed Children

At solidarity rallies in Cologne and Munich on Saturday, participants laid down 135 teddy bears/strollers/baby seats with the names of children killed in the Ukraine war. Thousands of people again took part in the many Germany-wide demonstrations against the Ukraine war this weekend. Among them, in many major cities, the Consuls General and Honorary Consuls of Ukraine.
According to the Ukrainian authorities, more than 135 children have been killed by bombs since the beginning of the war.
The events took place peacefully and without any disturbances, as reported by the initiators. The teddy bears are later to be given to refugee Ukrainian children in Cologne.
