Quote: “The story of the abduction of children from Ukraine supposedly by Russia is exaggerated. There was an attempt to rescue them from orphanages, why would we leave them there?

There are no problems with bringing children back to their relatives [in Ukraine – ed.].”

Background: In March, Pre-Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin in connection with the situation in Ukraine.
