Women and children are being forcibly deported en masse from the territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts temporarily occupied by the enemy, the Commissioner of the Ukrainian Parliament for Human Rights Lyudmila Denisova said.

“In the settlements where russians troops enter, so-called “humanitarian corridors” are organized for residents to be taken to the aggressor country. Women, children and the elderly are searched, Ukrainian documents, telephones are confiscated and sent to the border regions of the russian Federation. There they are placed in concentration camps with subsequent movement to depressed regions of russia for settlement.

People are left without means of communication with relatives, often without food and basic necessities.

There are currently no data on the number of deported persons. The Office of the Prosecutor General is conducting a pre-trial investigation into the fact of illegal deportation to russia of 2,389 children from the occupied territories of Donbass.

But we can assume the presence of thousands of forcibly deported Donietsk and Luhansk residents from the occupied territories.

Such actions of the aggressor state are qualified as kidnapping, which is a war crime and a direct violation of Articles 3 and 34 of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, Article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights,” she wrote.
