Russians protest against Norwegian authorities who have forcibly taken their children away

Unfortunately, I cannot post videos on a free WordPress account anymore, so here is a link.

In the video, Russians protest in front of the Norwegian Embassy in Moscow.

Many Russian children have been forcibly taken away from their parents by the Norwegian Child Welfare Services.

Russian diplomats are trying to resolve the problem but the Norwegian Government doesn’t want to cooperate. They insist on keeping the seized children in foster homes in Norway.

An extract from this link:

The protests came after Russian media have recently run a series of issues about how more and more Russian women living in Norway are deprived of their children. Especially two cases on Russian media were strong enough to mobilize the protestors. One of these news stories featured a Russian citizen, who lives in Norway, whose name is Maya Kasayeva. Her shocking staments took many newspapers’ front pages: “During the court hearings, the judge told me: ‘We give you residence permit, and you give us your son.’ I refused, and then the repressions started.”
