MOSCOW, August 19 (Itar-Tass) - Russian citizenship was granted to a girl taken by her mother from Norway with her, Renat Abdeyev, spokesman for Pavel Astakhov, the commissioner for children’s rights at the Russian president, told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“A nine-year old Russian girl who left Norway together with her mother has become a Russian citizen. I am very grateful to all who helped achieve this. Children of Russian parents have a right to their native country,” the spokesman quoted Astakhov as saying.
“We received the information from the agency of the Federal Migration Service today that the daughter has been given Russian citizenship. Now the reference to the child should be entered in my regular passport and secured by a seal. The child’s birth certificate was translated into Russian and received a notary’s seal,” Abdeyev conveyed the mother’s words.
On August 3, the Russian woman, accusing her husband of abusing her, fled Norway together with her daughter.
