Mattea Bubalo - BBC News

Russia has agreed to return four Ukrainian children to their families, as part of a deal brokered by Qatar.

The youngest is two years old and the oldest is 17.

The repatriation is part of a pilot scheme to return more of the thousands of children taken by Russia following its full-scale invasion of Ukraine last year.

Ukraine says it has identified 20,000 children who it alleges were abducted by Russia.
