Russia abducted 40 children from occupied Lysychansk and Severodonetsk, and has attempted to teach them that “Ukraine started the war”, the National Resistance Center reported on Dec. 15.

"The day before, the occupiers took 40 children from Lysychansk and Severodonetsk to the Stavropol Territory of Russia," the NRC stated.

Following the children’s abductions, they were medically examined by Russian occupation authorities before being shipped to camps in Russia, the NRC believes.

The center further reported that these children are being brainwashed with the help of well-known Russian actors and athletes, who narrate the Russian propaganda narratives to them – attempting to shift blame for the unprovoked full-scale invasion to Ukraine.
