The Save Ukraine team returned six more Ukrainian children and their families from the Russian occupation.

Mykola Kuleba, the founder and head of the charity organization Save Ukraine, announced this on Telegram.

"It is difficult for families to remember what they experienced, but we must talk about the crimes committed by the Russian Federation on our land," the post reads.

Kuleba thanked #WeAreAllUkrainians, the charity foundation "Humanity," and all other partners of Save Ukraine for supporting missions to save children.

"As of today, we have returned 290 children from Russia and temporarily occupied territories to Ukraine. Together, we are changing destinies and building a better world for the sake of the future," he added.

For reference:

Rubryka reported that Ukraine and Canada launched the International Coalition for the Return of Ukrainian Children.

It's important to mention that since the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, approximately 1,831 children have been impacted, with 542 minors losing their lives and over 1,289 children suffering injuries of varying severity.

According to the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights, Dmytro Lubinets, the deportation of more than 19,500 Ukrainian children has been officially confirmed.
