Ukraine has returned two more children from the territories temporarily occupied by Russia.
This was reported by Ombudsman Dmytro Lubinets on Telegram.
"These are two brothers - 13-year-old Kyrylo and 4-year-old Serhiy. Their mother personally appealed to the Ombudsman's Office with a request to help take the children to the government-controlled territory of Ukraine. We have processed the appeal and have a positive result," he wrote.
According to him, the children also visited the Center for the Protection of Children's Rights. While at the Center, 13-year-old Kyrylo drew the flag of Ukraine on a blackboard and said he loved his country very much.
Lubinets reminded that his office works in two directions:
- The first is the direct return of the child to Ukraine, taking into account all the risks and developing specific steps;
- the second is psychological, legal, and humanitarian assistance to the returned child and his or her family.
On 13 September, the Ombudsman reported that three children had recently been returned from the temporarily occupied territories and the Russian Federation.
