Russia forcibly deported 2 million Ukrainians, and tens of thousands remain in filtration camps
Russia has forcibly removed nearly two million people, including several hundred thousand children, from Ukraine while tens of thousands of Ukrainians are being held in filtration camps in the temporarily occupied territories, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said at the Asian Leadership Conference in Seoul.
“Just imagine this number — two million people. So many of our people have already been taken to Russia. Several hundred thousand children. No one will tell the exact numbers at the moment — all these deported people are deprived of means of communication, their documents are taken away from them, they are intimidated and taken to remote areas of Russia to make it as difficult as possible for them to return to their homeland,” the President noted.
