Russians aim to whitewash the woman kidnapping Ukrainian children – NRC
Russian propagandists are planning a series of media events aimed at whitewashing Putin’s Commissioner for Children’s Rights, Maria Lvova-Belova, reports the National Resistance Center.
According to the NRC, Moscow propagandists have scheduled a briefing for foreign journalists for October 16 for the purpose of justifying the abduction of Ukrainian children from the temporarily occupied territories. The main objective is to maintain the positive image of Putin’s Commissioner for Children’s Rights, Maria Lvova-Belova.
"The Russians plan to attract financial and organizational resources for a media campaign targeting European countries. They plan to produce a certain amount of propgaganda content," the message reads.
The National Resistance Center urges foreign journalists not to fall for the Russian propaganda machine and to always vet the information relayed by Russian officials and so-called journalists.
"The abduction of Ukrainian children is a hallmark of genocide against the Ukrainian people! The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court defines the forcible transfer of children from one ethnic group to another as a sign of genocide. The children are them taken to Russian orphanages and Russian families, where they are brainwashed and thus assimilated," stresses the NRC.
On March 17, 2023, the Pre-Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Court (“ICC” or “the Court”) issued warrants of arrest for President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, and the Commissioner for Children’s Rights in the Office of the President of the Russian Federation, Maria Lvova-Belova. They are accused of unlawful transfer of population (children) from occupied areas of Ukraine to the Russian Federation.
