On February 28, 2023, «KROK» University hosted a roundtable discussion on «State Policy in the Field of Child Protection in the Context of War in Ukraine» with the participation of Daria Gerasymchuk, Advisor to the Presidential Commissioner for Children's Rights and Child Rehabilitation, as an invited guest.
Anatolii Frantsuz, Vice-Rector for Scientific and Pedagogical Work (Legal Education), Hero of Ukraine, Honored Lawyer, Doctor of Law, Professor, made an opening speech.
The issues of deportation, crimes against children during the war, murder of children, illegal adoption, genocide of the Ukrainian nation are things that need to be discussed and acted upon not only at the state level, but also "shouted" at the international level... It was a great honor for our University during the period of martial law to meet with Daria Gerasymchuk, Advisor to the Presidential Commissioner for Children's Rights and Child Rehabilitation, who spoke about the work under martial law, in particular about the activities of the Coordination Headquarters for the Protection of Children's Rights under martial law, the Children of War portal, the Child is Not Alone chatbot, but most of all, all the participants of the round table were touched by the stories about the difficult path of returning deported children to their homeland. The topic is difficult, but we have to talk about it.
Ukraine is doing everything possible, but unfortunately, it is not enough... The usual tools of diplomacy do not work, the requirements of international humanitarian law do not apply to the aggressor, so there is no single mechanism. They will pay for each of the crimes. We thank those who are fighting today on all fronts for our Victory! Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the Armed Forces!
