ST. PETERSBURG, August 4. /TASS/. Three children from Cameroon who left their home country because of hostilities but got lost on their way will be sent from St. Petersburg to their mother who is in France, the St. Petersburg department of Russia’s Federal Bailiff Service has said.
"The children left Cameroon because the hostilities began there," the service said. "The underage children were removed the Moscow-Riga train in the Pskov region (northwestern Russia - TASS) and detained for attempting to leave Russia on forged documents."
Their mother who received permission to live in France with her children (two girls and a boy aged 16, 14 and 12 respectively) began searching for them. The St. Petersburg Bailiff Service got a request from the Russian Education and Science Ministry. Shortly afterwards it was established that they are in a St. Petersburg social shelter. Currently it is preparing visas for the children so that they can leave for France.
