The Ministry of Reintegration thanks Daria Kasyanova, the head of the board of the Ukrainian Child Rights Network, and lawyer Kateryna Bobrovska for this. Thanks to their hard work and perseverance, more and more deported children and youth are being returned to Ukraine.

Bohdan, Serhiy, and Oleksandr confidently met with Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk to discuss important topics such as employment, social security, education, and plans.

The boys are hesitant to discuss their time in deportation. In May 2022, they were sent to the Polyany sanatorium in the Moscow region for rehabilitation. There were 31 children in this group, which is why it was called Group 31. It consisted of 31 children, 16 boys, and 15 girls.  The children’s ages ranged from 6 to 17 years old at the time of deportation.

Since then, information about these children has been collected gradually by those who care. Six of them have already been returned.

Thanks to the search, we identified the names of collaborators who worked with russia and organized their forced deportation. Some of them are already under sanctions.

If you witness the illegal transfer of children to the temporarily occupied territory or the territory of the russian federation, report it immediately to the Ministry of Reintegration’s specialist Natalia Yemets at (050) 562-03-13. You can also call the National Information Bureau hotline at 16-48.
