People with disabilities, who were residents of a nursing home in occupied Oleszki, Ukraine, were illegally and probably forcibly deported to Russia – reported a Ukrainian government portal associated with the army. As noted by the website of the Center for National Opposition, the deportation of incapacitated people means that Russians will be able to seize their property with impunity and dispose of it as they wish.

The Russians illegally deport people from the occupied territories Ukraine people with disabilities – the Ukrainian government military website of the Center for National Opposition alerted on Tuesday. He reported that four residents of the nursing home in Oleszki, unable to work and deprived of family care, were taken to Penza in Russia.

All four are adults who previously lived in a nursing home for people with special developmental needs. The deportation of incapacitated people means that Russians will be able to seize their property with impunity and dispose of it as they wish.

According to the law, the guardian of such people is the organization where the incapacitated people live, and the management of such an entity can manage the money and property of the wards (including their pensions) and represent their rights in court – noted the portal created by Ukrainian special operations forces.

As emphasized, the circumstances of the deportation of the residents of the house in Oleszki to Russia indicate that these people were probably forcibly deported.

Illegal deportations from Ukraine

International law prohibits the resettlement of residents of occupied territories, regardless of their age and legal capacity. Forced deportations of civilians, carried out without justified reason, may be considered a war crime and, in certain circumstances, also a crime against humanity, the website reminded.

Currently, the Ukrainian government website Children of War reports 19,546 cases of children being deported and 388 people under 18 years of age being brought back to the country. According to these data, at least 545 children died and 1,309 were injured as a result of Russian aggression. The Ukrainian police reported 2,052 children as missing.

Experts and the media emphasize that these statistics are significantly underestimated, and the actual number of minors deported to Russia may be up to several hundred thousand.

In March 2023 International Criminal Court (ICC) issued an arrest warrant for the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and Russian children's rights ombudsman Maria Lvova-Belova for war crimes committed in Ukraine. The judges agreed to the prosecutor's request, finding that there are real grounds to believe that Putin and Lviv-Belov are responsible for the crimes of illegal deportations of children from the occupied territories of Ukraine to Russia.
