The Commission for Juvenile Affairs and the Protection of Their Rights of the city of Efremov, Tula Region, withdrew the lawsuit to restrict the parental rights of the father and mother of Masha Moskaleva. It is reported by Vesti-Tula.
As Svetlana Davydova, chairman of the commission, said, the purpose of the lawsuit was to protect the interests of the girl, including her right to education. Since now 13-year-old Masha lives with her mother and goes back to school, the goal can be considered achieved. Davydova stressed that the girl has a good relationship with her mother, and added that the commission will continue to monitor the family.
As Mediazona wrote , Masha did not go to school for almost a year, since April 2022, when the teachers called the police because of the anti-war drawing that the girl drew at the art lesson. After that, the security forces began to persecute the girl's father, Alexei Moskalev, who raised his daughter alone. In the end, a criminal case was opened against him for “discrediting” the army because of his posts in Odnoklassniki, and on March 28, 2023, he was sentenced to two years in prison. Masha had been staying at the shelter since the beginning of March, where she was placed at the request of her mother, who did not want to take her daughter.
After the verdict, Moskalev was informed that his daughter would be given to a substitute family. Soon, however, it became known that the girl's mother, Olga Sitchikhina, nevertheless took Masha from the shelter. On April 6, the court in Efremov was supposed to decide the issue of restricting the parental rights of Alexei Moskalev, but the meeting was postponed because the defendant could not be brought to court. The fact is that on the night before the verdict, he escaped from house arrest and was detained a few days later in Minsk, so the Federal Penitentiary Service could not deliver him to Efremov.
