(MENAFN- UkrinForm) The Russian occupiers are going to take Ukrainian children living in the temporarily occupied territory of Luhansk region to Karelia, northwest Russia.
'This week, a meeting was held between Elissan Shandarovich, the chairman of the Assembly of the Republic of Karelia, and Denis Miroshnychenko, the chairman of the so-called 'People's Council' in the Luhansk region's temporarily occupied territory. One of the key issues was the transfer of children from the occupied Luhansk region to the 'beautiful resorts' of Karelia for 'rest and recovery'. Taking into account how Russians 'rest' in the polar latitudes, this does not contribute to recovery in any way,' the National Resistance Center reports .
The Center explains that the heads of various regions of the Russian Federation use such trips with the intention of 'bargaining' a certain number of children for 'recovery' pursuing a purely practical goal: writing off budget funds for these measures. Moreover, increasing evidence of abductions of minors and human trafficking appears.
'The National Resistance Center calls on residents of the occupied territories not to send their children on any trips organized by the occupation administrations,' the statement reads.
As reported, as of January 26, 14,711 children were considered deported from Ukraine.
