Moscow, February 10. /TASS/. A court in Tula, central Russia, has allowed a family from Moscow to adopt Matvey, a baby boy who suffered terrible burns when an incubator caught fire just days after his birth, Russian children’s rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov said on Friday.
"The Tula city court has ruled on Matvey’s adoption, his mother will be Svetlana Ch.," Astakhov tweeted.
Matvey, born in November 2014, was abandoned by his parents, having received 70% burns to his body at a maternity hospital in Tula. The boy survived but still requires treatment and much plastic surgery.
The case of Matvey’s adoption has become unprecedented as three women, including the boy’s mother, were seeking to adopt him.
One of the adoption candidates, multi-child mother from Moscow Natalia Tupyakova, later withdrew her bid. Tupyakova was seeking to adopt the boy since summer and was backed by activists from a "Save Matvey" online community accusing the court of dragging out the case.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said at his December 17 news conference that he was following developments and hoped the boy would find a family.
