Ukraine has returned home three more minors who became hostages of the full-scale war unleashed by the aggressor country, the Russian Federation. Two of them were taken from the temporarily occupied territory of our country. Another child was kept on the territory of the Russian Federation.

This was announced on Saturday, December 16, by the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak. On his Telegram channel, he shared a photo of two children who were reunited with their mother.

Ukraine returns children

"We continue to fulfill the tasks of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Our children are returning home," the head of the Presidential Administration wrote.

The Office of the President and the Ombudsman of Ukraine, Dmytro Lubynets, were involved in the work on the Bring Kids Back UA action plan. Qatar acted as an intermediary.

Two of the three children (born in 2008 and 2012) returned to their mother. They were taken out of the TOT, Yermak said.

The third child was in the Russian Federation and reunited with his mother in Georgia.

"All of them are already at home with their families," said the head of the OP.

Lubinets added that these children will celebrate the holidays at home in Ukraine. A boy born in 2008 and a girl born in 2011 were taken out of Kherson region.

The third boy, born in 2011, was taken by his mother in Georgia. The father took the schoolboy to Russia without permission, and the child wanted to return to his mother in Ukraine.

"Each return is a separate story and a special operation that people are working on. Their goal is to return all children to their homeland. I am grateful to everyone who helps to do this. We will fight for every Ukrainian child and return them all," the ombudsman said.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, Pope Francis recently condemned the deaths of thousands of children in the wars that are raging in Ukraine, Gaza and Yemen. However, the pontiff traditionally did not name those responsible for these deaths.
