In addition to depression, children may experience anxiety and other psychological problems.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said this in a conversation with actor Orlando Bloom and the UNICEF team.

The president stressed that Russia's all-out war in Ukraine has damaged or completely destroyed thousands of schools, and nearly 2.7m Ukrainian schoolchildren are forced to study online or in a mixed format.

During the meeting, we discussed humanitarian aid projects and reconstruction issues specifically targeting children. UNICEF and our teams will work on several areas, bring victory closer and return a happy childhood to Ukrainian children," Zelensky said.

Volodymyr Zelenskiy said that we all know what this aggression has brought and how full-scale the efforts of the world must be to stop it in order to rebuild Ukraine after the war.
