Surgeons in Kyiv had to amputate a nine-year-old girl's arm to save her life after she was shot while fleeing her home.
The girl, known only Sasha, is recovering in hospital. She was fleeing from fighting in the Kyiv suburb of Hostomel with her father, mother and sister last week when the family car was hit by bullets.
Her father was killed and the other three escaped into the street before taking shelter in a cellar.
Sasha drifted in and out of consciousness for two days before she was carried to a nearby hospital on a make-shift stretcher by volunteers waving a white flag.
Speaking from her hospital bed Sasha said: 'I don't know why the Russians shot me. I hope it was an accident and that they didn't mean to hurt me. (This just breaks my heart - what a sweet little girl! )
