Ukraine-Russia War: Russia uses Ukrainian children as human shields - GUR
The children have allegedly been used as hostages to make sure civilians don't report on Russian troop movements or as shields to protect equipment.

Russia may be using Ukrainian children as human shields when moving military equipment during their ongoing invasion of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Intelligence Directorate (GUR) claimed in early April. There have been numerous reports of this occurring, either as hostages to make sure civilians don't share Russian troop movements to the Ukrainian army or to ensure that Ukrainian forces don't fire on Russian equipment columns.

Incidents of this occurring have been reported throughout the country, though the GUR specifies cases in the Sumy, Chernihiv, Zaporizhzhia and Kyiv oblasts. But there have been many other reports as well. In early March, the Russian Black Sea Fleet was accused by the Ukrainian military of using civilian vessels as human shields.
