Once in Russia, Ukrainian children are held incommunicado, brainwashed with pro-Russian propaganda, and adopted by Russian families – even though they have living relatives in Ukraine who are their legal guardians.

Nobody knows for sure how large this "stolen generation" of Ukrainian children is.

“They are using them appropriately,” National Security Spokesman John Kirby said on July 21. “They’re using them effectively, and they are actually having an impact on Russia’s defensive formations and Russia’s defensive maneuvering. I think I can leave it at that.”

Sławomir Sierakowski: Poland’s destructive grievance politics

The lack of a Ukrainian apology remains one of the biggest obstacles to a Polish-Ukrainian alliance. …But this is rather ironic, considering that Poland has a robust tradition of refusing to admit guilt for its own historical wrongs." —
