In Grozny airport, they were met by relatives and officials. Anna Kuznetsova, the ombudsman for children’s rights in the Russian Federation, was among those meeting.
From the message press service authorized:
Anna Kuznetsova together with the Chairman of the Parliament of Chechnya Magomed Daudov, the head of the Administration of the Head and Government of the Republic Vakhit Usmayev, the Commissioner for Children's Rights in the region Khamzat Hirakhmatov, other representatives of the leadership of the Chechen Republic and her relatives met the children who arrived at the ramp. On-line on the landing strip and in the airport building, together with representatives of relevant departments, the issue of processing the necessary documents and assistance was resolved.
We waited for the children to share the joy of returning and reuniting with their relatives. I hope that another happy stage will begin in their lives today. Today, not only children from Chechnya and Dagestan returned from these hot spots to Russia, but also for the first time from other regions of the country. In their native cities they are ready to provide all-round support and assistance, I will ask maximum assistance to provide regional ombudspersons for the rights of the child.
The leadership of the Chechen Republic provided active assistance in returning Russian and Kazakh families from Iraq.
Most of those who returned earlier moved to Iraq after their husbands (fathers), who decided to join the terrorist groups. The return of women and children was carried out after the procedure was agreed with the official Baghdad.
