SIMFEROPOL, May 29 - RIA Novosti. The decision to take care of a one-year-old boy, whose mother died of cancer, has not yet been made, the child is still kept in the baby's house and has already had chickenpox, said the ombudsman for the rights of the child in Crimea, Irina Klyueva.
Earlier, Klyueva reported that the boy's mother, who was diagnosed with cancer, appealed to the Simferopol administration with a request after her death to give her son under the care of the large Tarasenko family, but her will was never fulfilled. The Ombudsman noted that the woman had the legal right to write a statement, choosing specific people to place her child under guardianship. The boy's grandfather, according to the Ombudsman, is in Ukraine, but he is in no hurry to come and draw up documents.
“We are waiting for a wise decision. I hope this topic will be positively resolved. Our arguments will be heard, I do not see any irregularities in placing the boy under the care of the Tarasenko family. The child is still in the baby's house and has even had chickenpox. This is all wrong, it should not be so, "Klyueva told reporters.
According to her, the boy's grandfather was informed about the death of his daughter, but over the past two months he has not expressed a desire to come to Crimea to formalize custody of his grandson.
"He is not interested in his grandson. It is stupid to wait for him to come," said Klyueva.
The Ombudsman stressed that the final decision on granting the Tarasenko family the right to custody of the boy is made by the head of the Simferopol administration Natalya Malenko.
