War Russia – Ukraine: broadcast live – November 7, 2022.
Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russian forces have deported over 6,000 Ukrainian children, estimates the Ukrainian human rights spokesman. The minors were deported to Russia and to Ukrainian territory not under the control of the authorities in Kiev – added.
According to the latest data, the Russians deported 6,032 Ukrainian children, said Ołena Wychor from the secretariat of the Ukrainian human rights ombudsman, quoted on Monday by the Suspilne portal.
“But I have to specify: these are not only the children who were deported to Russia, but also (those who were deported) to territories not under the control of Ukrainian authorities. These are the actual children of Ukraine, stolen by Russian soldiers and deported to the territory where Ukraine’s law and (the principle of) humanity are not binding, “she emphasized.
She added that on November 4, the ombudsman received information that 12 children with disabilities from a care center in Oleszki in the occupied Kherson Oblast were taken to the annexed Crimea. The children were transported to a psychiatric hospital in the Simferopol region.
“So another 12 children with disabilities fell victim to the genocide that Russia was waging against the people of Ukraine,” said Wychor.
