Polish PM, top EU official to visit Kyiv, discuss Russia’s deportation of children – report
Ukraine will host an international event later this month attended by president Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Polish prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki, and European commission president Ursula von der Leyen, Polish news agency PAP reported on Monday, citing a senior EU source.
The details of the high-level visit are not disclosed for security reasons, although the talks will be focused on the illegal deportation of Ukrainian children to Russia, the source said.
Last month, the International Court of Justice in The Hague issued an arrest warrant for Russian president Vladimir Putin and Russian children's ombudsman Maria Lvova-Belova for illegal deportation and transfer of children, which constitutes a war crime.
Ukraine has documented Russia’s abduction of 4,390 orphaned or half-orphaned children and deportation of 16,207 children from the territory temporarily occupied by Russia.
