Russian woman seeks custody of her Egyptian-born childrenJune 1st, 2011 - 8:46 pm ICT by IANS
Krasnodar (Russia), June 1 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A Russian woman has asked Russian consular and social welfare authorities to help her take her two Egyptian-born children back home, Krasnodar region family ombudswoman Galina Doroshenko said Wednesday.
The woman, whose name was not disclosed, is currently divorcing her Egyptian husband and wants to return to her home town in Russia’s southern Krasnodar region.
She did not go to an Egyptian court because “she understands the court will not rule in her favour”, Doroshenko said.
The children have Egyptian citizenship.
It was not immediately clear how Russian authorities could help until the divorce procedure was completed and a court ruling passed.
Doroshenko only said the procedure “could last for years”.
