In 2022, a two-year-old girl was abducted from an orphanage in the Ukraine. Now, a year later the toddler has been traced back to one of Vladimir Putin’s allies.

Sergey Mironov is the 70-year-old leader of a Russian political party. He is also named on the little girl’s adoption papers. It’s believed Mironov is now married to the woman who abducted the girl from the orphanage.

According to records, the girl’s identity was changed when she arrived in Russia.

Mironov didn’t respond to the allegations but did criticise the false information attacks on him and his family.

The BBC reports that the child, originally named Margarite, was one of 48 who went missing from Kherson Regional Children’s Home when Russian forces took control of the city. They are among about 20,000 children who, according to the Ukrainian government, have been taken by Russian forces since the start of the full-scale invasion in 2022.

Warrants for Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Commissioner for Children’s Rights, Maria Lvova-Belova were issued earlier this year by the International Criminal Court. They face allegations of illegal deportation of Ukrainian children to Russian-controlled territory.
