The five-year-old girl, who has lived her entire life in the perinatal center of Moscow, was taken away from there, despite the raging coronavirus pandemic. Olga Yaroslavskaya, Ombudsman for Children's Rights of the capital, spoke about this. Who exactly did this, and where the child was taken, is unknown.
According to the Ombudsman, she cannot give the details, since it is a secret. “I’ll say one thing: there is no girl in state institutions,” she stressed.
Prior to that, Anna Kuznetsova, Ombudsman for the Rights of the Child in Russia, said that a foster family had already been selected for the girl. However, she argued that all documents would be drawn up only after the completion of the self-isolation regime.
Meanwhile, the term "foster family" can mean not only adoption, guardianship, or foster family, but also a family-type orphanage, according to the site KP.ru.
In the meantime, the girl's biological parents are trying to return her and restore their rights. According to her mother's lawyer, it was the first time she heard that the child had been taken away from the hospital. “I don’t understand how they could, in this case, issue documents if nothing works?” She said.
The child's family is now challenging the act of leaving the child in the hospital in the Cheryomushkinsky court, which the clinic filed against the parents. The meeting is scheduled for May 28. However, due to the coronavirus, the dates have already been postponed several times.
The story of a 5-year-old girl left in the hospital became known throughout Russia. She was born prematurely and with several complex diseases. The child was rescued, but the mother left the hospital a few months later. The baby was left to be treated.
The girl's father is businessman Yuri Zinkin. He paid a million rubles a month for the treatment and accommodation of the child in the hospital. Hospital staff said that the family rarely visited the child. At the same time, doctors say that the girl has been healthy for a long time. Parents say that the girl can experience apnea at any time - a sudden stop in breathing. It is dangerous to leave it at home.
As a result, in 2020, the Presnensky court restricted parental rights to Zinkin and his wife Tatyana Maksimova. The child is removed from the family. Parents are now obliged to pay for his maintenance 25% of their salary.
