Oleg Kornievski was heavily bombed by Russian forces in eastern Ukraine

A heartbreaking post shows a Ukrainian mother burying her six-year-old son after he was killed in a Russian attack on the city of Lysychansk in eastern Luhansk Region. Oleg Kornievski was heavily bombed by Russian forces in eastern Ukraine. Hours before the attack, Oleg was posed with a bouquet of flowers for his mother, Ekaterina. She had freshly picked the bouquet with which Oleg lovingly posed for the camera.

He was reportedly hit by shrapnel just outside their home. He was buried the next day by his traumatized mother. She was pictured tending to the ground where Oleg was buried as she burst into tears and prayed for her little one’s soul.


Little Oleg was one of three people who lost their lives when the Russians attacked the city with “massive bombardment”. The area was under constant attack, while Severodonetsk, on the opposite side of the Donets River, saw the heaviest fighting on the road. It was reported that at least one other person was injured in the attack.

Luhansk regional governor Serhiy Haidai said a shopping mall was burned down in one of the attacks. A nursery, a mine, some people’s houses were also destroyed as a result of the attack. At least four were killed and seven wounded in an airstrike on a civilian shelter on Thursday, June 16, Haidai reported. He also said that a separate airstrike hit the sanatorium building in the city, bringing down the entire building and causing more casualties.

“There are likely people trapped under the rubble,” Haidai said of the second attack, adding that a rescue is underway.

The Kyiv Independent media outlet tweeted: “Prosecutors: Russia’s war has killed at least 323 children in Ukraine since February 24. More than 583 children were injured, the attorney general’s office said on June 18.” One user replied, “Exactly. I’m sure they try to keep track, but figures never seem to be released. Also does anyone say how many Ukrainians were “relocated” to RU?”

Russian officials have said their forces are fighting for the “complete liberation” of Donbass, broadly referring to Ukraine’s eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, where Russian-backed separatists occupied significant territory before the invasion.

Russia has made slow but significant advances in the east and now controls over 90% of the Luhansk region. Russian forces attempt to extend control of eastern city of Severodonetsk and continue to attack north of Kharkiv city. Russian President Putin’s attack on Ukraine has been condemned around the world, but the Russian strongman has not backed down. Rumors of his deteriorating health and disapproval of the Russian elite’s onslaught have circulated, but have not stopped the Kremlin from abandoning its offensive against Ukraine.
