After ISIS: Bringing the children home
Conservative estimates put ISIS recruitment at around 30,000 fighters from around the world. Many were joined by their wives and children. Thousands of Russians joined the banner of the caliphate. Some died, leaving their families in war-ravaged cities of Syria and Iraq, with no hope of returning home. Russian human rights advocacy group "Objektiv" is making strenuous efforts to repatriate children of former ISIS members, to families waiting for them back home.
