HELSINKI, November 11. /TASS/. Social services in Finland will decide on Thursday, November 13, whether to return a girl to her mother, a Russian citizen, after the child was taken away from the mother by authorities and placed in another Finnish family.
Finnish human rights activist Johan Backman said earlier that the child did not return to her mother from the school on Friday, November 7. “The girl did not appear. It became known that she was taken by Finnish authorities without a court ruling and investigation. The daughter was handed over to a foster Finnish family,” he said.
Reasons for the authorities’ decision to take the child from her mother are not known, and as it is such practice, Finnish social services are not obliged to explain, he added.
The woman, Alexandra Fomina, has been living in Finland, in the city of Vantaa, only for three years. She and her daughter were born in St. Petersburg. Both have Russian citizenship, he said.
“There are no problems in the family. Alexandra is divorced from her Finnish husband, but good relations remain between them,” the human rights activist said.
Diplomats in the Russian embassy in Finland told TASS that they were informed about the incident. The consular office of the embassy is studying the situation, press attach Irina Belyayeva said.
Fomina told TASS that a meeting with an inspector of social services of the city of Vantaa will be held on Thursday, and she, her attorneys and maybe somebody from the Russian consulate will be present at the meeting. “On the day, social services may decide whether to return the child or not,” she said.
