MOSCOW, November 1. /TASS/. Russia’s children’s ombudsman Pavel Astakhov has addressed the UN Secretary General’s special representative as Norwegian authorities deprived another Russian family of a child, the ombudsman’s aide Renat Abdeyev told TASS on Saturday.
On Friday night, the Norwegian Child Welfare Agency took from a family of Russian citizens another child - a girl six years old.
“On November 12, the ombudsman will be on a working visit to Minsk /Belarus/, where he will have a meeting with the UN Secretary General’s special representative for children and will discuss the issue of the Russian families in Norway, which were deprived of their children. Among other cases, he will discuss the latest case, where on Friday the Norwegian authorities took a six year-old girl from a family,” the aide said.
He said the Norwegian side was threatening the girl’s family saying the parents will not see the child if they communicate with the media.
The children’s ombudsman has already discussed with the Russian Ambassador to Norway Vyacheslav Pavlovsky the alarming situation around Russian families, which are being deprived of children for no good reasons.
“The alarming information makes us act more actively in protection of our children and families abroad,” Astakhov said in Twitter.
This was not the first case of the kind. On October 8, Norwegian authorities took a boy, Oscar, from his family, which had come on a business trip to Tromso. The reason claimed was “the extracted milk tooth.” The Russian ombudsman said the report read the mother had “beaten out the child’s tooth.”
The children’s ombudsman says the Russian Federation continues watching the situation and will not abide by the circumstances.
