A schoolgirl in Ukraine wrote a heartbreaking letter to her dead mother, who was killed when they were both shot at in their car.
It is believed that the mother and daughter were trying to escape when the missiles hit them.
In a handwritten note in a diary, she wrote: “We will meet in heaven.
“I’ll do my best to get to heaven too.”
The letter, shared on Twitter by a Ukrainian MP, is said to date from March 8, two weeks after Vladimir Putin’s attack.
Where in Ukraine the incident happened is unclear.

Written in childish handwriting—without a period and with a few grammatical errors—she said, “Mom. This letter is a gift to you on March 8th.
“If you think you raised me for nothing. Thank you for the best nine years of my life.
“I am very grateful to you for my childhood. You are the best mom in the world. I will never forget you.
“I want you to be happy in heaven. I wish you go to heaven. We will meet in heaven.
“I will do my best to go to heaven too.
“Kiss you, Galiya.”
The letter’s emergence comes hours after Boris Johnson visited a newly relieved Kyiv and said the West will supply Ukraine with the equipment it needs to ensure it can never be attacked by Russia again.
After an unannounced visit to the Ukrainian capital, the prime minister held surprising talks with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
Downing Street said Britain would send 120 armored vehicles, as well as new anti-ship missile systems.
Mr Johnson, who appeared alongside Mr Zelensky in a recorded radio clip, said the West would continue to “tighten” sanctions against Moscow while praising the courage of the Ukrainian resistance.
“I think that the Ukrainians showed the courage of a lion, and you gave Volodymyr that lion’s roar,” he said.
“The UK and others (will) provide the equipment, the technology, the know-how and the intelligence so that Ukraine is never attacked again.
“So Ukraine is so fortified and protected – that Ukraine can never be bullied again. Never be blackmailed again. Never be threatened in the same way again.”
