The Russian invaders continue to put pressure on the citizens of Ukraine, to violate human rights. In particular, in Starobilsk, Luhansk region, the Russian occupation authorities force people to send children aged 6 and over to a so-called Cossack cadet corps for supposedly “proper patriotic education”. People who refuse to send their children to the specified corps are threatened with deprivation of parental rights.

Glory to Ukraine!
