Luhansk Oblast head said up to 1000 Ukrainians who were forcibly taken to Russia are on the Latvian border now. However, Russian border guards don’t let them out. People have been waiting in the queue for 4 days already and contacted Ukrainian authorities by a chatbot in despair.

Earlier, thousands of Ukrainian who were deported to Russia from their homes in the east of Ukraine during occupation managed to leave Russia for the Baltic states.
