Ukraine, with the assistance of Qatar, has brought home three more children, as this was announced by the Head of the Office of the President, Andriy Yermak.

"We continue to fulfill the task of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Our children are coming home. Through the joint efforts of our team and the Ukrainian Ombudsman Dmytro Lubinets, with the mediation of the state of Qatar, we are bringing back three children," he announced.

According to him, two of them have returned to their mother - these are children born in 2008 and 2012, who were successfully brought from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine.

The third child was on the territory of the Russian Federation and has been reunited with her mother in the territory of Georgia.

"All of them are already at home with their families," Yermak added.

Deportation of children

Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion, Russia has consistently deported Ukrainian children to the annexed Crimea, Belarus, or remote areas of Russia.

The deportations have prompted the International Criminal Court in The Hague to issue an arrest warrant for dictator Vladimir Putin and the authorized representative for children's rights in Russia, Maria Lvova-Belova, over the illegal deportation of Ukrainian children.
