UKRAINE, Jan 25 — Today, the Save Ukraine organization returned four more children who were in the temporarily occupied territories or taken to Russia, reported Mykola Kuleba, a former President’s Commissioner for Children’s Rights.

“Today, the children finally met their families after a long period of separation. Some of them had not seen each other for almost two years. Some parents had not been able to pick up their children for several months, and the Russians wanted to send them to a rehabilitation center. Fortunately, these trials are over, and now all the children are safe,” Mykola Kuleba wrote.
