2024 - First part-session
In the draft resolution, after paragraph 11, insert the following paragraph:

"The Assembly notes that the lack of a unified legal mechanism profoundly impedes the prompt return of Ukrainian children, potentially prolonging the process for decades. It acknowledges that any delay in the repatriation process not only reduces the likelihood of returning or reunifying all affected children with their families but also disproportionately impacts orphans and children deprived of parental care and who lack any adequate legal representation."
