(ANSA) – ROME, Sept 08 – Ukraine’s Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations, Kristina Hayovichin, told the UN Security Council that thousands of Ukrainian citizens were forcibly deported to “isolated and depressed areas of Siberia and the Far East of Russia”. Hayovyshyn estimated the number of deported Ukrainians at 2.5 million, including 38,000 children. CNN reports that.
Kyiv’s representative to the United Nations denounced the Russian “liquidation” scheme, adding that Ukrainians forced to travel to Russia or to Moscow-controlled territories are being killed and tortured. Hyovichin said that Ukrainian citizens are being intimidated under the pretext of searching for “dangerous” people by the Russian authorities. The representative of Ukraine in the Security Council said that those who have different political views or belong to the Ukrainian government or the media are disappearing into a gray area and children are being “ripped from the arms of their parents”.
