About us

Since the beginning of unprovoked invasion to Ukraine, thousands of Ukrainian children have been forcibly removed by Russia from their families, friends, and homes.

Under the initiative of the President of Ukraine, the Bring Kids Back UA action plan unites the efforts of Ukrainian government agencies, partner countries, international organizations to bring the genocidal policies of the Russian Federation to an end, and make sure similar tragedies do not happen in the future.

The forced deportation of Ukrainian children is harrowing testament to Russia’s genocidal policy against Ukraine.

With tactics like forcibly taking children from orphanages, killing parents, splitting families during filtration processes, creating unbearable living conditions in occupied areas, and brazenly kidnapping children from their homes and schools, it’s more than a tragedy; it’s a deliberate attack on Ukraine’s future.
