'Russians killed my nine-year-old sister while we waved white flags,' says Ukrainian civilian


An injured Ukrainian civilian recalls the murder of his nine-year-old sister and father, during Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

We had white flags and we met Russian tank and we drove slowly. They did not shoot us but heavy machine gun did shell our car. First, they killed my dad and then my mom escaped from the car.

"I was sitting in the car, faced my sister. I screamed that ‘We are civilians, do not shoot’ but they shoot at us. He killed her,” said a young survivor of the attacks Michael. “We got white flags but Russians killed half of my family, my sister and my dad,” he added.
