'Please, please keep him safe': Heartbreaking mother's note in Ukrainian child refugee's backpack

Ukrainian MP said that he hugged a child who was separated from his parents and had a note in his backpack that stated “Please, please keep him safe”.

Kira Rudyk is visiting the UK to meet Ben Wallace, the defense secretary. She told Sophy Ridge Sunday the heartbreaking stories about children who were forced to flee Russia’s invasion Ukraine.

She stated that there were children in Mariupol, which was under siege. Their parents had to surrender their children and gave them backpacks. Blue for the boys and pink for the girls.

She said that they were hiding small notes inside and giving them to strangers to keep their safe.

They were telling them to “just get them safe” and “whatever happens, just keep your backpack.”

“Then, at the refugee center you hugged this child and told them to give it to you.

“And he’s saying, “no, mummy said me not do that, and mummy warned me not do that. Will I ever see my mom again?”

“Then, when you open it up, the same thing likely happened in the Second World War. They were writing down small details such as: mummy love you, last name, firstname, this is his paperwork and his address. Please keep him safe.

“This is what I want to do for Ukrainian children. To make them safe.”

“How can you talk to a child about that?” She added.

The MP called for the UK to provide Ukraine missiles because they are “critically needed” as the Russians have been invading eastern Ukraine and blocking ports. This is preventing the exportation of wheat, sunflower oil, and potatoes.

She stated that there is an urgent need for a humanitarian mission to obtain all the produce.

“I’m sure you guys already have higher food prices. You know why sunflower oil isn’t in the shops? It’s because it is all in Ukraine right now.

“The world currently has only 10 weeks worth of grain. The world’s politicians must figure out how to harvest all that Ukraine has.

Ms Rudyk said that she “humbly asked” the government to make it easier to obtain visas for Ukrainian refugees in the UK.

She stated that the current process is “too bureaucratic and long, and it’s confusing”.

She said, “The processes are easier in Canada so it is only a question mark for me about why United Kingdom wouldn’t do the same – it would be only natural.”
