What is known about the return of Ukrainain children from TOT

On September 14, 2023, Human Rights Ombudsman Dmytro Lubinets said that 386 young Ukrainians had been returned home since the creation of a separate coordination headquarters for children. These are only those children who were deported to the territory of the Russian Federation. At the same time, the number of children returned from the occupation will be counted separately.

"We decided to divide these date because it is one thing to return a child from the territory of the Russian Federation after deportation, and another thing is when we return children who were forcibly displaced within the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine," Lubinets said.

In November, Save Ukraine evacuated four children with their families from the occupied territories.

On December 14, four more children were returned from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. The parents of one of the children serve in the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
