(MENAFN- UkrinForm) The OSCE has launched the work on an international report on Russia's forced deportation of Ukrainian children and attempts of assimilation, which is a step in the systemic accountability of the aggressor state for this crime.

President Volodymyr Zelensky said this in his video address to the nation, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Within the framework of the OSCE, work on the first separate international report, which will be dedicated to Russia's forced deportation of Ukrainian children and attempts to assimilate our children, began...
