"I publicly address Russian Commissioner for Human Rights Tatyana Moskalkova and Russian Commissioner for Children's Rights Maria Lvova-Belova. I suggest that they should immediately provide the Ukrainian side with the lists of all orphans and children deprived of parental care, who were citizens of Ukraine aged up to and including 18 years old on February 24, 2022," Vereshchuk posted on Telegram.
She also called on Moskalkova and Lvova-Belova to immediately submit to the Ukrainian side the lists of all orphans and children deprived of parental care, who are currently in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, as well as those who were taken to Russian territory.
