Since the Russian Federation began its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, there have been a lot of crimes against civilians.
According to preliminary information from the National Information Bureau, which helps find missing, kidnapped, and illegally deported Ukrainians, more than 13,000 children were illegally taken from the occupied territories, and 330 of them are still missing.
Missing children in Ukraine
As an illustration, under the pretext of “recovery,” orphanage children from the Kherson-occupied region were sent to Russia or to areas under its control. Under the guise of an evacuation, children who still had their parents were removed from Kherson. Parents were obliged to provide original birth certificates.
Reports say that the people who allegedly took the children away for “vacation” or “evacuation” are not giving them back at this time. There were also similar reports of this in Kharkiv and Zaporozhye.
No one knows what’s going to happen to the kids right now.
Children from Ukraine are being sent away because of these illegal actions.
We ask everyone to contact us if they have any information about the smuggling of children out of Ukraine or know of any parents whose children have been kidnapped there. We will bring attention to this issue by putting this information on our website and updating it as new information comes in.
