National Resistance Center: Russia resettles deported Ukrainians in 55 remote regions

Ukrainians are deported for "further assimilation" in remote regions in Russia, while Russian authorities are creating conditions forcing them to obtain a Russian passport, the Ukrainian military's National Resistance Center reported on April 7.

Over 2,500 captive Ukrainian civilians have been deported to Russia from the occupied territories, Ombudsman Dmytro Lubinets said on April 6.

"We cannot clearly say how many Ukrainians are currently on the territory of the Russian Federation as Russia itself does not provide us with any official numbers,” noted Lubinets.

According to Lubinets and the Office of the Ombudsman, there is evidence that Russia is allegedly trying to recruit some of the individuals into the Wagner mercenary group to then fight against Ukraine.

So far, Russia has reportedly deported over Ukrainian 19,000 children to its territory, violating the Geneva Conventions, the Reintegration Ministry reported on March 28.

To date, only 327 children have been returned to Ukraine.

49 countries condemn Russia’s attempts to justify deportation of Ukrainian children
The European Union and 49 countries issued a joint statement condemning Russia for organizing an informal meeting of the UN Security Council aimed at spreading “disinformation about its widespread and unlawful forced deportation of thousands of Ukrainian children.”
