The Minister of Labor and Social Development of the Novosibirsk Region, Yaroslav Frolov, did not confirm or deny media reports about rape in the Oyashinsky boarding school for mentally retarded children.
- We insist on in-depth verification. Now representatives of our department, the Investigative Committee, Roszdravnadzor and other bodies are working there. Video materials are being studied, workers and parents are being interrogated, - said Yaroslav Frolov.
A woman, who introduced herself as a relative of one of the pupils, told reporters that the institution has been practicing intimate relationships between pupils, including involuntary ones, and imposed "zon orders" for three years already.
“I wonder why this woman, observing such a situation for three years, carried it in herself for so long and didn’t address anywhere,” the minister commented. - I urge her to communicate directly with the investigation.
Yaroslav Frolov added that the institution is now functioning as usual. Employees are on a "quarantine shift" that lasts 14 days.
- In this institution there are children with very difficult diagnoses - both orphans and "home children" undergoing rehabilitation. The institution has always been in good standing, - added Yaroslav Frolov in conclusion.
