Russia plans to use foreign children as human shields against Ukraine’s attempts to liberate annexed Crimea. For this purpose, the Russian Federation is trying to organize group excursions for foreign children to Crimea, said Lithuanian Seimas member Laurinas Kaščunas.

According to him, currently Russians in different countries of the world are trying to organize children’s groups for trips to Crimea. Some of them are offered ordinary recreation, while others – various cultural and educational events.

Kashchuns claims that under the guise of a music competition, the winning groups – children aged twelve to thirteen years from Kazakhstan, Israel, Belgium, Morocco, Tajikistan, Egypt, Armenia and other countries – are invited to go to the “Artek” children’s camp in Crimea in the near future. Various other events are also being organized.

“This is done with two goals: to create the impression that Crimea is supposedly a legal part of the Russian Federation and to try to deny the fact of occupation, but the main goal is still much more cynical – to create the largest possible “human shield” of children before the upcoming counterattack of the Ukrainian army, which will undoubtedly involve the occupied Crimean peninsula,” said the Lithuanian MP.

Kashchunas urged the governments of these and other countries to take immediate measures to protect their citizens and prevent the use of children as hostages by Russia for military purposes.

According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the expected counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine every day will also affect Crimea to some extent. The president is confident that the occupiers and other Russians who have arrived there in large numbers can flee the peninsula even before the arrival of Ukrainian soldiers.
