President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine spoke of the issue in a video address to the Asian Leadership Conference in Seoul, Ukrinform reports.
"Just imagine this number – two million people. That’s how many of our people have already been taken to Russia. Several hundred thousand children… No one will name the exact numbers at the moment – all these deported people are deprived of means of communication, their IDs have been taken from them, they are being intimidated and taken them to remote areas of Russia, so that it will be as difficult as possible for them to return home to their Motherland," the president noted.
He also emphasized that Russia created in the occupied territory the so-called filtration camps, through which it forces Ukrainians to pass.
According to Zelensky, tens of thousands remain in those camps.
"Young women disappear there. I believe you all understand what’s happening to them there," the head of state added.
Since February 24, full-scale Russian military aggression has been ongoing in Ukraine.
