The occupiers took the abducted patients from mental hospitals in Novaya Kakhovka and Oleshok to the village of Strilkove on the Arabatskaya Strelka.
They are kept at the “Geolog” recreation center, which the Russians seized and equipped a mental hospital there. Most of the staff were imported from the Russian Federation, but there are also local people who agreed to take care of patients. Please note that this is the kidnapping of people who cannot provide for themselves. In fact, patients are being held hostage.
It should be noted that the Russians also actively kidnap children from boarding schools for further “adoption”. However, according to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, the forcible transfer of children from one ethnic group to another constitutes genocide. Children are deliberately taken to remote areas of the Russian Federation. In particular, to the Leningrad, Volgograd, Novosibirsk, and Tyumen regions.
At the same time, propaganda uses the theft of children and patients as an excuse to create an emotional background, talking about “children who were saved from the Nazis.”
