Russian forces have taken THOUSANDS of Ukrainian children away from their families, (new?) report finds:
In addition to the already, large, large list of war crimes (especially against citizens), there is another one that has not yet received much recognition here in the west!
Russians taking thousands of Ukranian children and move them to Moskou… They get adopted and then named a russian citizen…
One of the ways Putin wants to fight the declining population of Russia!?!?
Russia's population is in a historic decline as emigration (especially high because of the draft), casualities of wars and a decades long plunging birth rate form a 'perfect storm'!
3 days ago we had an international news item about this here in Europe and CNN, CNBC and CBC took it over….
AP news already had a story about this last Octobre, but without much consequence or follow-up, I believe…
I know that I live more close to the warzones (and might have more consequenses coming), but I really do believe it is time to step up our help for Ukraine and hit Russia more, not only with economic sanctions but also with some more agressive stands/actions. The longer this war takes, the more the (international) economies will suffer...Perhaps just ripping of the bandaide might be the best solution? My opinion!
