MOSCOW, July 24. /ITAR-TASS reporter Viktoria Yeryomina/. Children's Rights Commissioner for the President of Russia Pavel Astakhov is examining the situation of the Neustadt family, where the wife, a U.S. citizen, demands from her Russian ex-husband to return the children that are currently held in Russia. This was reported today by the ombudsman’s press service.
“The Rights Commissioner managed to find out that both of their sons are Russian citizens, therefore, the solution to this problem is in the interests of not only U.S. but also Russia. Currently, Mr. Astakhov is seeing into the situation, the Neustadt family case is under his control,” the spokesperson added.
The children were born in Switzerland, and in January 2011 the family moved to London. Two months later, Mrs. Neustadt accused her husband of domestic violence, and in the course of divorce proceedings the court ruled to leave the children with their mother. Upon court permission the children went to Russia for Christmas holidays in January this year to see their father. They were supposed to return to UK before next hearings, scheduled for January 13, but they didn’t.
Presently, U.S. citizen Rachel Neustadt demands from her Russian ex-husband to return her two sons, Daniel and Jonathan, claiming that their father is holding the children in Russia contrary to court decision.
