This was announced by the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada for Human Rights Lyudmyla Denisova

Comment: Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Lyudmyla Denisova:

“From the media of the aggressor it became known about the facts of illegal removal of 27 orphans to Aprelivka near Moscow. They were transferred to temporary care for up to ten local families.”

According to her, there is currently no information on whether such children have the status of orphans or deprived of parental care and whether the children have relatives who want to take them to their families. The ombudsman said that the living conditions of the children, the state of health, and whether the children’s opinion was taken into account in such families were also unknown.

Denisova stressed that the export of Ukrainian children by Russia is a crime that falls under the definition of human trafficking under international law. She called on the UN Commission to Investigate Human Rights Violations during Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine to take these facts into account.
