In the occupied Melitopol, children are forced to wear St. George’s ribbons and learn poems about the war.
This is reported by Ludmila Denisova, Commissioner for Human Rights of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
Such acts were committed by school principals who cooperated with the occupying forces. According to Denisova, teachers are distributing children’s themed drawings and videos of schoolchildren reciting poems about the war with St. George’s ribbons on their chests.
These actions violate Article 29 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which stipulates that a child’s education should be aimed at fostering respect for the child’s parents, cultural identity, language and national values of the country in which the child resides. This is direct evidence of genocide against Ukrainian people.
