Tears for the girl killed in a pushchair as mourners weep over four-year-old slaughtered in Ukraine attack

  • Liza Dmitrieva, four, was killed while she was in her push chair during airstrike 
  • In an open casket with her cuddly toys at her feet, the four-year-old lay at peace
  • Her mother Iryna remains in hospital after the Russian airstrike in Vinnytsia 

She enchanted everyone she met, so it was no surprise to see scores of mourners saying their farewells to Liza Dmitrieva.

In an open casket with her cuddly toys at her feet, the four-year-old lay at peace, as relatives gathered over her. 

Her mother Iryna remains in hospital after the Russian airstrike in Vinnytsia, a city with no strategic value, killed Liza in her push chair and at least 23 others.

The death of the Down’s Syndrome child, whose delightful social media videos had shown how she was prospering despite the war, made her the latest face of Ukraine’s agony.

Iryna’s aunt Tetiana Dmytrysyna said after speaking to her in hospital: ‘[Liza’s] mother was robbed of the most precious thing she had.’

Ms Dmytrysyna added: ‘She remembered that she was reaching for her daughter, and Liza was already dead.’

Two other children were killed in the strike, and more than 200 others were injured.

Three of those missing after the attack were found alive in the rubble on Saturday and one person remained missing, the emergency service said.
