MOSCOW, June 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Seven children have been injured in fighting in eastern Ukraine since May 9, the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) reported.

One of the victims is a 15-year-old boy who got a gunshot wound in the abdomen at a checkpoint. He is in serious condition, the organization said.

The youngest victim is a four-year-old boy who got a fragmentation wound as he was walking in the street with his grandmother.

A review of the situation in Donetsk has shown that almost all these children became witnesses of violence.

UNICEF noted an increasing impact of the conflict on children. In Donetsk, a children's hospital was shut down, and in some city areas, parents did not let their children go to school.

UNICEF is monitoring the situation, but some reports are very difficult to confirm, the organization said on its website. The UNICEF leadership urges all the parties to the conflict to protect children and stop violence.
