2,389 Ukrainian Children kids allegedly kidnapped and moved to Russia

Over 2,000 Ukrainian children are reported to have been “kidnapped and taken to Russia,” a violation of international law that has been dubbed “gross.”

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry released the damaging update on Facebook, accusing Russia of kidnapping minors.

“According to information received, on March 19, Russian occupation troops illegally took 2389 children from the temporarily controlled parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions to the Russian Federation.

“Forcible removal of civilians, particularly children, to the territory of the aggressor state bears the hallmarks of kidnapping.

“These activities constitute flagrant violations of international law, most notably international humanitarian law.”

The MFA said, “By demolishing houses and murdering parents, Russia deprives Ukrainian children of parental care and jeopardizes their lives.”

The world community must act immediately, the statement stated, to put an end to the barbaric war on the Ukrainian people.

“The facts of child abduction, as well as hundreds of other facts of crimes committed by Russian occupiers against citizens in Ukraine, are meticulously documented by law enforcement,” it stated.

“The perpetrators of these acts will be apprehended.”

The abduction or illegal removal of children at a time of conflict is one of the UN Security Council’s six “grave breaches.”

These six infractions serve as the foundation for the Council’s system for monitoring, reporting, and responding to child abuse during times of war.

This comes only days after the Kremlin was charged with war crimes against children for attacking a Ukrainian theatre in Mariupol that housed several children.
