On Tuesday, March 28, the Ministry of Reintegration of Ukraine updated the data on the number of deported children from Ukraine.
Currently, it is known that the occupiers deported more than 19,500 children.
The press service of the agency informs about this.
"According to the latest data of the National Information Bureau, 19,514 Ukrainian children are currently considered to be illegally deported," the message reads.
There are more than 4,300 status children in the temporarily occupied territories and in the Russian Federation, including orphans and children deprived of parental care.
The Ministry of Reintegration urges those who become aware of the deportation of a child to report it by calling the 24-hour hotline of the National Information Bureau or using social media chatbots.
We previously reported that the Russian Federation is calling a meeting of the UN Security Council to acquit Russian President Vladimir Putin of deporting Ukrainian children.
It will be recalled that the International Criminal Court in The Hague
issued an arrest warrant for Putin
for the deportation of Ukrainian children to the Russian Federation.
The court also issued an arrest warrant for Maria Lvova-Belova, Commissioner for Children's Rights of the Russian Federation.
