Thousands Of Mentally Handicapped Children Abandoned In Ukraine As Parents And Hospital Staff Flee The Country

Thousands of mentally and physically disabled Ukrainian children have been left to rot inside insane asylums and mental hospitals after staff fled and parents either fled without them or were killed before they could get their kids back.

Disability Rights International has carried out several investigations into Ukrainian insane asylums and mental hospitals, they reported that patients were tied to beds with their heads covered and only wearing thin clothes.

They also reported how hospital staff took this opportunity to abandon their patients and flee to Poland and Moldova, with only a hand full administrators remaining.

The administrators all told the human rights charity that: “We have to tie them down and cover their heads as a way to restrain them when the shelling occurs, there's just no other way”.
