More than 400,000 Ukrainians have been forcibly displaced to Russia since the onset of a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.

That’s according to Verkhovna Rada’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Liudmyla Denisova, who spoke with Euronews.

"Our citizens were deported from our territory to their territory. They went against their will they were taken by force first to [a] filtration camp in Donetsk region. After that they were taken to Russia by bus. Then they are taken by train to different places, including depressive regions of the Russian Federation, like Sakhalin," Denisova said.

Denisova said that in more than a month of war, there has not been one viable humanitarian corridor.

She also accused Russia of stealing Ukrainian army uniforms and sporting them while committing crimes, as well as saying that what is happening in Mariupol is genocidal.

“The situation in Mairupol is difficult and it’s not changing. Most of the buildings are destroyed by bombs and shelling. More than 20,000 inhabitants have been killed," Denisova said.
