Russians illegally adopt Ukrainian children — Ukrainian Ombudsman
Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova has called on the Italian Foreign Affairs Ministry to assist with imposing sanctions on those involved in the illegal adoption of Ukrainian children in Russia.
Russians kidnapped 2,165 orphans from Ukraine. Russian authorities have already developed a special simplified procedure to quickly adopt Ukrainian children.
“Upon the adoption, we will not be able to bring them back home, as all documents of such children will be destroyed. This is an act of genocide against the Ukrainian people. No children — no nation! I have a list of those who organized this process in Moscow Region and the Certain Areas of Donetsk Region and Luhansk Region (CADLR), and I urge the Italian Foreign Affairs Ministry to assist with imposing individual sanctions on those included on the list,” Denisova stressed.
