The Russian system of destroying the identity of children in the temporary occupied territories (TOT)
Russia formed a whole system of destroying the Ukrainian identity of children during the 9 years of occupation of Crimea, parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia began implementing this system on newly occupied territories.
The experts of «Centre of civil education «Almenda» have been researching Russia’s policy and actions regarding children in Crimea since 2014:
Militarization, indoctrination, the destruction of the Ukrainian studies component in education, Propaganda of the culture of war – ALL these are just MECHANISMS by which Russia implements “TRANSFERRING” CHILDREN FROM the TOT FROM ONE HUMAN GROUP TO ANOTHER THROUGH THE EDUCATION SYSTEM.
- Why is this not a crime?
- Should the absence of a physical element in the transfer of children ultimately disallow qualifying this practice as a transfer from one group to another?
In the infographic below, you can see that this crime has objects (at which it is aimed), executors (subjects), forms through which the crime is carried out, and most importantly MECHANISMS – which have direct intentions, structure of an implementation.
