UNICEF refutes rumors on financial assistance to the Government of Uzbekistan in repartition of 156 Uzbek citizens from conflict zones

UNICEF did not provide any financial assistance to the government of Uzbekistan in the repatriation process of 156 Uzbek women and children from combat zones in the Middle East.

“With regard to inaccurate information circulated on certain social media channels about the repatriation of 156 Uzbek women and children by the Government of Uzbekistan, UNICEF would like to clarify that it has not provided any financial assistance to the Government of Uzbekistan in the process of repatriation,” the organization said in a statement.

It is noted that UNICEF Uzbekistan has offered support in providing these children with psychosocial services and support for their reintegration into their families and communities.

As previously reported, on the instructions of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, 156 citizens of Uzbekistan, mostly women and children, were returned to their homeland from the zone of armed conflicts in the Middle East on May 30.
