On 14 December, Ukraine returned five more children from Russian-occupied territories, Kherson Oblast head Oleksandr Produkin said.

According to Produkin, two of the recently returned children evacuated along with their parents. The other three children who returned did not have family members.

“Unfortunately, we are only able to evacuate the children themselves,” the Kherson governor said.

The five children are now in a safe location and are being provided with necessary assistance, authorities confirmed, according to Produkin.
