The young girl, named Masha, was filmed being taken to her nursery school for the first time since it was reduced to rubble.
Footage, released by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence, shows the shelled building and playground as Masha and three adults drive past.
One woman asks: “Masha, why are you crying? Is it because there’s no more kindergarten?
“You’re upset about the kindergarten aren’t you?”The crying child responds: “Yes.”
