The OSCE's second Moscow Mechanism report, published on 14 July, highlighted the forced deportation of civilians from Ukraine to Russia, including through Russia's so-called 'filtration process'. The UK condemns this practice, and in June sanctioned the Russian Children's Rights Commissioner, Maria Lvova-Belova, for her alleged involvement in the forced deportation and adoption of Ukrainian children. We will continue to hold the Russian Government to account, including by supporting both Ukraine's domestic investigation into war crimes and the International Criminal Court investigation.
