kremlin policy in Ukraine is aimed at aggressive indoctrination, ethnic identification change and deprivation of Ukraine of its future generations, the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN, Sergiy Kyslytsya, was cited as saying by

“We note with concern that russia has reportedly intensified its deportation and abduction practices in the occupied territories under the guise of so-called ‘evacuation.’ Like many of you in this Council, we reiterate that it is only the ruscist troops that must be ‘evacuated’ from the territory of Ukraine. As soon as this happens, the atrocities of war will be over,” Kyslytsya said.

He emphasized that russia violates the fundamental principles of child protection in wartime. As a result of the russian aggression, 480 children have been killed, and 967 – injured. According to Kyslytsya, the Prosecutor General ‘s Office of Ukraine has verified 13 cases of sexual violence against children in Donetsk, Kyiv, Kherson, Mykolaiv, and Chernihiv regions. “The real numbers are definitely higher and our law enforcement continues the investigation,” he added.

Kyslytsya said that as a result of russian attacks, 3,185 educational facilities have been damaged, of which 330 have been fully destroyed. According to a UNICEF report, education for an estimated 5.7 million children has been disrupted. One and a half million children face mental health issues.

“The forcible deportation of children is nothing but a well-planned kremlin policy aimed at aggressive indoctrination, ethnic identification change and the deprivation of Ukraine of its future generation,” said the permanent ambassador.

To date, the Ukrainian authorities have identified 19,393 children deported or abducted to the russian federation or to the territories of Ukraine temporarily occupied by russia. Nearly 4,390 of them are orphans or children without parental care. It has been possible to return only 364 children, Kyslytsya said.
