Over 500,000 Ukrainians forcibly taken to Russia
The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, during his speech in the Parliament of Estonia, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“As of today, over 500,000 Ukrainians have been forcibly deported. Just imagine how many it is! It is as if the invaders decided to take the entire Tallinn away. The entire city. It is one-third of your population,” Zelenskyy said.
In his words, Russians are attempting to take the deported Ukrainians to the remote regions of Russia, taking away their documents and personal belongings, namely mobile phones.
According to the President of Ukraine, Russians separate Ukrainian children from their parents and plan to allow Russian families to adopt them illegally.
