MOSCOW, December 27 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Foreign Ministry is keeping under control the living conditions of Anastasia Zavgorodnaya and her family at the social security centre, spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
“Our Embassy in Helsinki succeeded to ensure the process of social adaptation of Zavgorodnaya’s family,” the Russian diplomat noted. He recalled that the coordination committee is to have its next meeting in January 2013. “We are satisfied with the work of the Russian Embassy in Finland to settle the problem of Zavgorodnaya,” Lukashevich said.
The scandal over the family of Anastasia Zavgorodnaya has been going on since September 2012, when the social services of the town Vantaa seized her four children, including a newborn, on the suspicions of the parents in home violence. The Finnish social services decided that she should live at the social security centre, where her children and her husband had been staying since December 13.
