Russian occupation forces in Luhansk Oblast are preparing to abduct more children under the false pretense of conducting "medical examinations," the National Resistance Center reported on May 23.

Some doctors are pressuring parents into giving bribes in order for them not to report any illnesses, the National Resistance Center added.

The National Resistance Center urged Ukrainians in occupied Luhansk Oblast not to allow their children to undergo any "medical examination," stressing that they will be forcibly relocated to Russia and most likely end up in an orphanage.
