The European Commission and Poland want to organize an international conference to return to Ukraine more than 16,000 children allegedly deported by Russia from the war zone. This was stated by the head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.

“We know that today 16.2 thousand children were deported, only 300 returned home. <...> Together with Ukraine and the prime minister [Польши Матеушем] Morawiecki created an initiative to return these children,” Ursula von der Leyen said during a conference in Brussels, TASS reports. She noted that it was planned to organize a conference for this purpose. “We are at the beginning of a very difficult job,” said the head of the EC.

Earlier, the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, said that the problem of children who were allegedly forcibly brought to Russia was greatly inflated. Russia plans to hold an informal meeting of the UN Security Council around April 6 to explain the whole situation. The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, noted that children should not be in safe conditions, and not under the “bombs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.”
