2024 - First part-session
In the draft resolution, after paragraph 7, insert the following paragraph:

"The Assembly emphasises that Ukrainian children leave Ukraine because of the armed aggression of the Russian Federation. Thus, Ukraine does not create dangerous living conditions for children. They are only to be subjected to temporary protection in the territories of foreign states. Therefore, the provisions of Article 6 of the Hague Convention of 19 October 1996 on Jurisdiction, Applicable Law, Recognition, Enforcement and Co-operation in respect of Parental Responsibility and Measures for the Protection of Children are not applicable to Ukrainian children. Meanwhile the application of Article 5 of the same Convention is appropriate. Guided by Article 5 of the Convention, judicial or administrative bodies of Ukraine have the jurisdiction to take measures aimed at protecting the child’s person or property."
