Volunteers reveal three camps for deported Ukrainians in Russia’s Penza region
A total of 808,000 Ukrainians have been taken from Ukraine to the Russian Federation, including 153,000 children. The relevant statement was made by Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova on Telegram.
“Almost every day, the occupiers’ media report on the deportation of Ukrainian citizens, citing rashist officials. As of April 16, 2022, according to them, a total of 808,000 people were displaced, including 153,000 children,” Denisova noted.
According to Denisova, Russian volunteers contacted her last week. They revealed three camps intended for deported Ukrainians in Russia’s Penza region.
“They visited one of such camps. At that moment, there were more than 400 people, mostly women and 147 children of different age groups, including babies. Our citizens were in extremely difficult and depressed condition. They had no clothes, food, hygienic kits, as they were taken directly from a bomb shelter in Mariupol,” Denisova told.
