KRASNODAR, December 10 (Itar-Tass) — The Communist Party branch in the Krasnodar territory, southern Russia, has called for boycotting Finland-made goods after Finland’s social services took away four children of a Russian-born resident of Finland, Anastasia Zavgorodnyaya, and her husband and handed them over to the adoptive family.
A series of rallies will take place on Monday in different cities of the Krasnodar territory.
“Protesters will march along shops and supermarkets selling Finnish goods,” the branch’s secretary, Dmitry Pechinsky, told Itar-Tass.
The party plans to submit all materials on rallies to the Finnish embassy, the Russian Foreign Ministry and the human rights commissioner.
“Lawlessness of Finland’s juvenile bodies that once again took away children from Russian mothers is beyond any limits. If we want to protect the rights of our citizens abroad, the society should somehow react to the events happening with small citizens of our country,” the party branch said in its statement.
