Former Commissioner for children's rights Mykola Kuleba said that the Russian military in Kherson abducted 58 orphaned children who were hiding in the basement of one of the churches. He believes that the search of FSB churches in the occupied territory took place after the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for human rights Lyudmila Denisova wrote a post about the location of these children.

The ex-ombudsman wrote about this on Facebook.

"I would like to inform you, Lyudmila, that immediately after the publication of your post, all churches in this city were searched by the FSB and the occupier authorities. Until the publication of your post, they did not know that there were children in the basement of the church," Kuleba claims.

"While the situation in Kherson has not yet been so critical, the local authorities have not permitted to leave this children's home. But by the time your post was published, there was a chance to save the children and take them to the territories controlled by Ukraine," Kuleba said.

As reported, the day before, Denisova said that in Kherson, 58 children from the orphanage had been hiding in the basement of a local church for over a month. These included, in particular, children with disabilities who need special care and treatment. The Ombudsman called for an evacuation.
