About 40,000 Mariupol residents forcibly taken to “DPR” or Russia
According to the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova, about 40,000 Mariupol residents have been taken by Russian invaders to the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic or the Russian Federation, according to the data from local authorities.
“The calculation of deportees is complicated, as they (Russian invaders — Ed.) seize Ukrainian documents from people,” Denisova noted.
In her words, ruscists separate parents from children. A total of 17 children were taken by Russian invaders from a hospital in Mariupol, while their parents were left in Mariupol and evacuated to Zaporizhzhia.
“I appeal to the International Committee of the Red Cross to make every effort and assist in bringing the Ukrainians illegally taken to Russia back and opening safe humanitarian corridors from the areas of hostilities,” Denisova stressed.
