Why this is interesting:
“Save Ukraine” rescue network has already returned home 64 children that were deported by russia from Kharkiv and Kherson regions. There are currently 31 Ukrainian children on their way home, of whom 24 were in health resorts in Yevpatoriya, and 7 — in Voronezh, Rostov and Belgorod regions.
Data on displaced children vary widely. The Yale research tells of 6,000 children, the Ukrainian side knows about more than 19,500 Ukrainian children. At the same time, at the latest press conference, russian Commissioner for Children’s Rights maria lvova-belova mentioned over 730,000 Ukrainian children whom they “sheltered” since the beginning of the full-scale aggression. These are children from boarding schools and orphanages. Children whose parents were killed or put in filtration camps by the russians. Children who were moved to russia together with their parents or relatives, as well as children who were taken to camps by the russians. And even this number is currently not final.
