The tragic fates of the Ukrainian children abducted to Russia, their families and their rescuers.
by Wladimir Klitschko and Tatjana Kiel
Heyne/PRH Germany, September 2022
In March 2023, the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin. The charge: the abduction of Ukrainian children to Russia. The National Information Office of Ukraine lists over 16,000 very precisely recorded cases – the actual number is probably much higher.
Dr. Wladimir Klitschko and Tatjana Kiel denounce these outrageous war tactics. Their book tells of the fates of abducted children, of torn families and desperate parents. It exposes Russia’s state-controlled, targeted campaign and sets out what we can do to fight it. Last but not least, Klitschko and Kiel introduce the courageous people who search for stolen children and bring them back home.
Dr. Wladimir Klitschko, former heavyweight boxing world champion with a doctorate in sports science, sees himself as an innovator whose knowledge and experience from 30 years of competitive sports can be applied to people’s everyday life and working world. His goal is to allow people to see problems as challenges that can be overcome through a strong sense of reality and courage.
Tatjana Kiel, as CEO of Klitschko Ventures, is in charge of developing the second career of Dr. Wladimir Klitschko, whom along with his brother Vitali she has been assisting in event management and marketing since 2006.
