HELSINKI, December 11 (Itar-Tass) - Finland’s social service has taken two children away from a Russian citizen and her Finnish husband living in the town of Lapeenranta, local human rights activist Johan Bckman said on Wednesday.
The Finnish social service has taken away two sons away from 27-year old Russian Viktoria Isaeva and her Finnish-born husband, though no family conflict had taken place, he said. The parents are puzzled about the reasons for such a decision. Their children have stayed at a private children’s shelter for already a year, Bckman added.
According to Bckman, Viktoria and her husband may see their children only under supervision once a week, though the Finnish authorities had no objections against the Russian mother, who is in perfect health.
Bckman added Isaeva had already turned for help to the Russian authorities for fear that she may never get her boys back.
