MOSCOW, May 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s children’s rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov has asked the Russian government to provide shelter for Ukrainian families with children from the areas of combat actions in the south-east of Ukraine, the ombudsman’s press office said on Friday.
“I have been receiving numerous requests from Russian nationals whose relatives - Ukrainian citizens - found themselves in the area of combat actions in Ukraine’s Southeast where a real fratricidal war has been unleashed,” he said. “They plead for help in evacuation of their relatives with children into the Russian territory.”
Astakhov sent telegrams to the federal ministers and governors of Russia’s neighbouring regions with a request to settle all the formalities in organisation of evacuation, of crossing the Russian border and in providing legal status to these families in Russia.
