The Russian documentary claims that Moscow organized the Ukrainian mass adoptions

Prominent Russian bloggers have begun distributing a multi-part documentary series containing photos of several Ukrainian children adopted into Russian families, according to the American Institute for the Study of War.

The scale is enormous – the documentary claims that more than 150,000 children have been “evacuated” from Donbass alone this year. Previously, Russian officials have publicly admitted that a major adoption plan is in the works.

The Moscow Commissioner for Children’s Rights, Maria Lvova Belova, had previously adopted a child from Ukraine. There are concerns that these adoptions are forced and part of a broader campaign of ethnic cleansing.
