Lure for "holiday" or "treatment": Iryna Vereshchuk told about the scheme of abduction of Ukrainian children organized by Russia
Russian war criminals continue to abduct Ukrainian children in the temporarily occupied territories. The invaders resort to, among other things, gross deception and offer children "holiday" or "sanatorium treatment" in Russia.
After the enemy takes children to Russia, parents are also forced to go to the territory of the aggressor country in search of their children. Iryna Vereshchuk, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories, spoke about it during the "United News" telethon.
According to her, some gullible parents in the temporarily occupied territories even give the invaders written consent to take their children to Russia. After that, contact with minors is often lost, and people cannot find their children. Vereshchuk added that some residents of the temporarily occupied territories have to go to Russia to pick up their children, but then they cannot leave.
The Deputy Prime Minister emphasized that the legend of the Russians with the alleged "holiday" and "sanatorium treatment" of children in Russia looks absurd. Therefore, Vereshchuk urged residents of the temporarily occupied territories not to trust the enemy and not to let their children go with the invaders to the aggressor country.
"Imagine that during World War II, a Nazi enters a Ukrainian house and offers to send your children to Germany for holisay or treatment. The situation is absurd and impossible, you might say. But this is exactly how the Russians act. Therefore, I urge our citizens in the temporarily occupied territories not to be gullible. Do not let your children go on any holiday to Russia," said Iryna Vereshchuk.
Also, the Ministry of Reintegration appealed to residents of the temporarily occupied territories with a request not to sign any permits or other documents regarding children at the request of the occupiers.
To recap, residents of the temporarily occupied Mariupol deported to Russia have no rights. They also cannot work or receive any social benefits from the authorities of the aggressor country.
Earlier, it was reported that members of the Verkhovna Rada appealed to the United Nations over Russia's forced deportation of children from Ukraine. The resolution No. 9038 was voted for by 330 MPs.
Since the beginning of the full-scale war, the terrorist country Russia has deported tens of thousands of children from Ukraine. Putin's invaders seek to deprive Ukrainian children of their national identity.
The Molfar OSINT community believes that the aggressor country could have deported up to 700,000 Ukrainian children since the beginning of the full-scale invasion. It is especially difficult for orphans to stay in their homeland. As of the end of 2022, almost 100 minors have been returned home.
The Institute for the Study of War noted that deported Ukrainians in Russia are being forcibly assimilated. Russia is creating conditions for erasing Ukrainian cultural identity.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, the occupiers have increased the rate of deportation of Ukrainians living in the temporarily occupied territories, calling it "evacuation." The Russians are stealing funds allocated for the accommodation of people and settling Ukrainians in unsanitary conditions.
