Neue Begründung:

According to Human Rights Watch https://www.hrw.org/news/2022/04/26/urgently-help-ukraine-civilians-flee-mariupol  “there is ample evidence that thousands of Ukrainians were taken to Russia under duress”.

A media investigation relying on updates from Russian local news . inews.co.uk/news/putin-mariupol-survivors-remote-corners-russia-investigation-network-camps-1615516 exposed a network of 66 camps based at USSR-era countryside health facilities and other sites in regions including Siberia, the Caucasus, the Arctic Circle and the Far East.

As far back as on 13.04.2022, addressing the Estonian Parliament, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that Russian occupational forces had already deported more than 500 thousand Ukrainian citizens www.unian.ua/war/okupanti-vzhe-vivezli-z-ukrajini-ponad-500-tis-lyudey-novini-vtorgnennya-rosiji-v-ukrajinu-11784867.html.

 And since then, the number of the deported has been increasing daily!

On 22.04.2022, Lyudmila Denisova, Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights, declared that, according to data published by the Russian Federation, “878 thousand residents, including 164 thousand children, have been deported to Russia” https://www.currenttime.tv/a/denisova/31816162.html?fbclid=IwAR3m2GJb-EOr5wdniz3aTjD4eeNDOGYtQIAxPDTRMegwLvFoKdIiXVg2GpY

She also asserted on multiple occasions that Russia as the country occupying Ukraine “grossly violates provisions of Article 49 of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, which prohibits forced relocation or deportation of persons from occupied territories”  https://ombudsman.gov.ua/news_details/upovnovazhenij-okupanti-primusovo-deportuvali-meshkanciv-mariupolya-na-dalekij-shid and on 23.04.22, she stated that Ruscists “subject citizens of Ukraine to gruelling and degrading treatment during forced deportation” and that ’evacuated’ Ukrainians “are taken to depressed northern regions of Russia”  https://ombudsman.gov.ua/news_details/upovnovazhenij-rashisti-piddayut-gromadyan-ukrayini-visnazhlivim-i-prinizlivim-proceduram-pid-chas-primusovoyi-deportaciyi

During a briefing on 02.05.2022, Darya Herasymchuk, Commissioner of the President of Ukraine for Children's Rights and Rehabilitation, reported that “Russia has illegitimately deported 181 thousand Ukrainian children or relocated them to the occupied territories“ https://www.unian.ua/society/deportaciya-ukrajinciv-ponad-180-tisyach-ditey-primusovo-vivezli-do-rf-ta-ordlo-novini-ukrajini-11809794.html

We are calling on you to help to restore and protect the legal identity of Ukrainian citizens deported to the Russian Federation and, in particular, uphold their legitimate right to travel between States. This will help war-afflicted persons to leave the aggressor country and, over time, return to Ukraine!

Thanking you for your support,
