President Of Ukraine Says 500,000 Ukrainian Civilians Have Been Deported To Russia In “Attempt To Assimilate Them”
The president of Ukraine says half a million of his country’s civilians have been deported to Russia, in an “attempt to assimilate them” by force.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy says they’ve had their papers taken off them when leaving their homeland.
Meanwhile the US President has promised an additional 150 million dollars of military aid for Ukraine.
President Zelenskyy says he’s concerned about the wellbeing of those who’ve been forced to leave:
“More than half a million of our people have already been deported to Russia. They were forced to go there. Everything was taken away from them: documents, means of communication. They are sent to remote regions of foreign lands”.
