The occupiers could take children from the Kherson region to the so-called "rehabilitation"

According to Oleksandr Prokudin, the head of Kherson RMA , the parents dared to leave the occupation due to the threat of taking the children away for so-called "rehabilitation".

After all, there were cases when children were taken away and not returned home.

It was an extremely difficult rescue mission with delays, roadblocks, and intimidation. Fortunately, all the children are safe now. Doctors and psychologists work with them.
