Social protection asks to limit the rights of the father of the girl with a picture against the war
Social protection asked to limit the parental rights of Alexei Moskalev, the father of the schoolgirl who drew an anti-war picture. The Juvenile Affairs Commission also asked to limit the parental rights of the girl’s mother. The lawsuit was filed in January, RBC reports.
Moskalyov and his underage daughter Maria live in the town of Efremov, Tula Region. The father raises his daughter alone. He is involved in the case of the so-called repeated discrediting of the Russian army. The court sent him under house arrest. While the father was in the detention center before the court, his daughter was taken to the social center.
The defense believed that the chosen restraining measure would allow Moskalyov to take his daughter away from the center, but the employees are not going to do this.
The head of the city commission for minors, Svetlana Davydova, told RBC that the Moskalev family is on the “prophylactic register of families in a socially dangerous situation.” According to Davydova, the schoolgirl’s father was brought to administrative responsibility twice, and her mother lived separately and was not interested in the child’s life.
Moskalyov’s lawyer, Vladimir Bilyenko, noted in a conversation with RBC that he was not notified of the lawsuit. In a comment to “Kommersant”, the defense attorney said that, according to the court ruling, only the lawyer, the investigator and people living in the apartment can contact the schoolgirl’s father – that is, only the daughter.
Bilyenko also drew attention to the fact that he lives in Lipetsk and cannot deliver products to Moskalyov, and the investigator will not do this. If neighbors or friends deliver the food, it may be considered a violation of house arrest and Moskalev could be sent to pre-trial detention center.
The lawyer sent a complaint to the Prosecutor General’s Office and the ombudsman Tatiana Moskalkova about violations of the rights of the father and daughter. A schoolgirl has a constitutional right to live with her father, Bilyenko clarified.
- At the end of last year, a criminal case was opened against Moskalyov for the so-called discrediting of the Russian army due to a post on the Odnoklassniki social network.
- A resident of Efremov came to the attention of the police after he was released from school because of his daughter’s drawing. A schoolgirl drew a woman standing next to the flag of Ukraine and shielding a child from rockets flying from Russia. The drawing teacher told the director of the school about the drawing. But she turned to the police.
- At the end of December, a criminal case was opened against Moskalev under the criminal article of discrediting the Russian army due to an anti-war post in “Odnoklassniki”. The schoolgirl’s father faces up to three years in prison.
