The head of the Investigative Committee of Russia, Alexander Bastrykin, instructed to check the family, which starred in the release of the show "Male / Female" called "Sutyajniki". It was about former spouses Karen Tunyan and Kristina Borzhova, who cannot share custody of their youngest daughter Milana. The eldest daughter Veronica filed in the story showed an international gesture for help or a signal for help in case of domestic violence. The girl flexed her thumb and then wrapped her other fingers around it. On camera, the girl said that she “lives very friendly with her mother and sister.”
Investigators will check the living conditions of the family, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation said in a statement.
