Russia's medical aggression: “rehabilitation” ploy forces children to obtain Russian passports
Russia is forcing Ukrainian children to undergo "thorough preventive medical examinations" within its territory, pressuring them to obtain Russian documents
The National Resistance Center reported the information.
Throughout the temporarily occupied territories, the occupiers have integrated 'health care' institutions into the medical sphere of the Russian Federation," the statement reads.
Russia is allocating RUB 1.5 billion for "thorough medical checks" of children from the temporarily occupied southern and eastern regions of Ukraine. This is an excuse to send children for "rehabilitation" to distant parts of Russia, "Where they are brainwashed, or even used to put pressure on their parents to leave their homeland."
They are also forced to obtain state health insurance through medical examinations, which requires a Russian passport from a parent or a teenager over 14 years old.
In the temporarily occupied Sievierodonetsk, Luhansk region, only one of the two working pharmacies remains, but there is an acute shortage of medicines there as well.
