US Imposes Sanctions Over Ukrainian Children's Forced Transfer to Russian Camps



Amid rising geopolitical tensions, the US is clamping down on entities and individuals linked to the forceful transfer and indoctrination of Ukrainian children in Russian camps and in occupied Crimea.


US State Secretary Antony Blinken announced the imposition of sanctions on two entities and 11 individuals associated with the said abuses. In addition, visa restrictions are being placed on three officials installed by Russia, specifically for their part in human rights violations against Ukrainian minors.


This decision was timed to coincide with Ukrainian Independence Day on August 24, adding further weight to the US stance on Russia’s activities since its invasion of Ukraine. Blinken reiterated the US’s unwavering commitment to holding those accountable for the harm Russia has brought upon the Ukrainian people.


Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the ongoing situation in a recent BRICS summit. He placed blame squarely on the West, asserting that Western countries' desire to maintain global dominance led to the severe crisis in Ukraine. Putin claimed Russia's actions in Ukraine are purely motivated by the need to halt the conflict instigated by Western powers. In the same address, he emphasized the need for BRICS nations to de-dollarise, hinting at a move away from relying on the US dollar in international transactions.


So What Does This Mean? This move signals a toughened US stance against Russia’s activities in Ukraine. As the international community watches closely, such actions reinforce the complex web of geopolitical challenges. The back-and-forth narrative between the US and Russia, especially in influential platforms like the BRICS summit, indicates that the situation in Ukraine remains a significant point of contention in global politics.

putin !! what a completely dishonest , lying, meglomanic nut case! He obviously believe`s his own bullshite! unless he is deposed and got rid of along with all his ass-lickers, then Ukraine will have to invade Russia to get its children back ! F F Sake it cannot be that Russia loses this war ( which is pretty certain now) and keeps those children ! ......Even when Ukraine again controls its borders, its not just the children ( important as that is ) its the fact that Russia ( under putin) keeps lobbing missiles at Ukraine ! So Ukraine has to invade Russia, to initiate a change of government ! How anybody thinks this will end at t…

My fear is how Ukraine gets their children back after defeating Russia without invading and taking Moscow.

I think the parents just want their children back and really don't care about the rest. Also would that not play into the narrative and potentially backfire and galvanize the Russians. Better to watch Moscow burn from the border

I have a hard time imagining all the balls in the air that the Ukrainians are dealing with right now. The documentation of war crimes alone is mind-boggling. As a former combat vet, I know my parents worried and prayed for me constantly. Can you imagine what the parents of a stolen child must be enduring? Knowing that your enemy is doing everything it can to brainwash your child. This is worse than being a POW, at least they are traded occasionally...these children are not. It is UNCONSIABLE.
