MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. The removal of Russian children from families in Norway remains in Moscow’s limelight, the spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.

“The problem exists,” Lukashevich said adding that “the ways to resolve it must be found together (with Norway - TASS).”

On November 14, the Russian Foreign Ministry held a special meeting on the problem.

“A broad range of measures that would be implemented through diplomatic channels was outlined as well as work on other cases when the children were taken from Russian families that live in Norway,” he said.

Earlier, Russia’s children rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov urged the international human rights organizations to look to “the juvenile terror” in Norway.

“We demand from the international human rights organizations alongside the United States, the Council of Europe and its Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) to pay attention to the ‘juvenile terror’ in Norway,” he wrote on his page.

Astakhov said that he handed out the data on 55 Russian children taken from their families in Norway to the Russian Investigative Committee for a further enquiry into the cases.
