Child GULAG Ukraine - Secret travel bans
Police sources in Kyiv confirm to Uwe and Anatol: Behind their back, the Ukrainian authorities have imposed travel bans on Emil and Sabina. Thus, without (most unlikely) consent of the abductor mothers, it is impossible to the children to vsit their fathers or spend their vacation in Germany.
It means: At first, the abductor mothers have set up an inner wall around the children, and then, in its notorious Soviet ways, Ukraine has added an outer wall. Such are the conditions as in the former communist internment system (GULAG): The children are detained, isolated, and moved from place to place like prisoners - without notification to close relatives.
The civil rights activists, who are committed to the rule of law and therefore to Emil's and Sabina's return to Germany, have investigated: Currently, more than 400 foreign children are illegally retained in Ukraine, with no prospect of repatriation.
Emil's and Sabina's fate reflect grand politics: Ukraine is practically incapable of reform and incompatible with EU.
In 2014, the Maidan movement has swept the former hopefuls Petrenko, Yanchuk and Petukhov to the top of Kyiv's Ministry of Justice. Today, not only in the field of the Hague Convention, these bigwigs sign the same mendacious Soviet-bureaucratic decrees and declarations as their predecessors of the ancien regime. They are no longer recognized by their former allies: corrupted by the system, with some reform polish on the surface. They say "Europe" - and do "Soviet Union".
The system clearly seeks to exhaust and to put off foreign fathers. Immediate threats to the kidnapped children's welfare and future are ignored.
In Kyiv, even unpolitical people aware of the situation are ashamed of the harm the Ukrainian state does to kidnapped children and their relatives left behind. On behalf of their country, they apologize to Uwe and Anatol.
