UA two-year-old girl who went missing in a forest near her home in Kharkiv, Ukraine, was found alive four days later.
While the front lines of the war continue to rage, like Violeta, Ukrainian emergency services continue to work to address other issues in the country.
The child, who was playing in his garden on Tuesday, suddenly went missing. More than a thousand people are involved in the search for the girl.
“No crime was committed against the child,” Ukrainian officials said.
“More than 1,000 people, including police, rescuers, volunteers and local residents, searched for the child in the village, among bushes, swamps and checked all surrounding reservoirs,” Sky News quoted Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs as saying. .
“Today, finally, the girl was found in the forest. She is alive, but very tired, thirsty and hungry”, and reveals that Violetta had to be treated at the hospital.
Although this was not the case with this minor, the case is relevant in the context of the war, as many Ukrainian children were illegally taken to Russia during the invasion.
Moscow, on the other hand, says it is sheltering the children, promising to have “saved” these children from the fighting.
Maria Lvova-Belova, the Russian commissioner for children who are the target of an International Criminal Court (ICC) arrest warrant, has announced that she is ready to return deported children to Ukraine if their families so request.
Recall that Ukraine accused Russian troops of forcibly deporting more than 210,000 children to Russia and that Moscow wanted to turn them into Russian citizens. Lyudmila Denisova, the Commissioner for Human Rights in Ukraine, presented the figure.
“When our children are taken away from us, they are destroying their national identity and depriving our country of its future,” Denisova stressed, as quoted by Reuters news agency. “They teach our children history in Russian [o presidente russo] Putin told everyone.
According to the official, 210,000 children are part of a group of 1.2 million Ukrainians that Kyiv says have been forcibly deported to Russia.
On February 24, Russia launched a military offensive in Ukraine that killed more than 3,500 civilians, according to the UN, which warns that the true number could be much higher. The military offensive has displaced more than 13 million people, of whom about six million have fled the country, according to the latest UN data.
