MOSCOW, April 22 (Itar-Tass) - Representatives of New Zealand's social services are expected to meet on Monday with the Russians whose baby was taken away from them and inform them about the conditions to return the baby, Russian presidential commissioner for children’s rights Pavel Astakhov said in his blog on Twitter.
The first meeting of the parents of six-week-old Polina taken away from them in New Zealand with representatives of the social services will be held on Monday morning. The social services are expected to present their demands to the parents and the conditions for the return, he said.
The separation of the six-week-old baby from the parents should be admitted as an unnecessarily cruel method of social protection contrary to the U.N. Convention, he believes.
Earlier, Astakhov asked the Russian Foreign Minister to immediately check the fact of the ungrounded seizure of the baby girl from the Russian parents in New Zealand.
Before that, media reported that New Zealand's social services took the baby away from the Russian family.
The requests were also addressed to Russian ambassador to New Zealand Valery Tereshchenko and New Zealand's Prime Minister John Key.
It is necessary to clear it up, Astakhov said.
