Ten Ukrainian children return from Georgia, saved from human trafficking campaign

19:54, 7 June 2019

Ten children of Suslyak family were rescued from possible slavery. The kids returned to Ukraine from Georgia on board of the presidential plane, as Volodymyr Zelensky ordered to send the aircraft to pick them up.

Ukraine and Georgia spent several weeks negotiating the details, and finally the children returned home. Yulia Suslyak and ten children, seven of which were actually born from various substitute mothers within one year, arrived to Tbilisi from Moscow in April.

The woman was detained as she tried to exit Georgia and make it to the non-recognized state of Abkhazia. Suslyak is now in custody, waiting for the first court session to take place. It is slated for June 20.
