The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine has resulted in almost 86 per cent of schools having bomb shelters, according to CNN.

A total of 1,085 shelters have already been set up in educational facilities in Kyiv region which rounds up the tally to 86 pc that can operate in full-time or mixed formats.

One school has been destroyed every other day in Ukraine since the start of the academic year last September, Save the Children reported.

Reports from Ukraine's Ministry of Education and Science show that 48 schools were completely destroyed by active combat, shelling and missile strikes from September to mid-December 2022 -- that's nearly a quarter of all schools destroyed since the escalation of war last February.
