Eastern Ukraine: children’s welfare and safety must be ensured

“As General Rapporteur for Children of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), I would like to express my grave concern over the imminent danger children are in, due to the existing situation in Eastern Ukraine,” today said Stella Kyriakides (Cyprus, EPP/CD).

“I therefore strongly urge all sides concerned to ensure that children’s welfare and safety are held uppermost and to allow a safety humanitarian corridor that will allow children to have access to health and social services, and to ensure their transportation with their families to safer areas if necessary,” Ms Kyriakides added.
