There were an estimated 100,000 children in Ukraine’s institutions before Russia’s war on Ukraine which began in February 2022.

Disability Rights International,

Disability Rights International (DRI) published these recommendations in response to a visit to Ukraine’s institutions for children with disabilities in late April 2022. DRI visited three facilities for children aged six to adult, and one “baby” home for children from birth to age six.

DRI found that Ukraine’s children with disabilities with the greatest support needs are living in atrocious conditions – entirely overlooked by major international relief agencies and receiving little support from abroad.

On 7 April 2022, the European Parliament adopted a resolution on "EU Protection of Children and Young People Fleeing the War Against Ukraine" calling for greater protection of children fleeing war in Ukraine, particularly vulnerable children, for the registration of children entering the EU from institutional care, as well as monitoring their well-being and location in the EU. MEPs called on member states to halt child adoptions in order to avoid further or permanent separation of children from their parents and families against their best interests.
