Berlin police have detained Russian citizen Yulia Seibert, from whom three small children were seized in Germany two months ago. REN TV reported about it on March 31.
According to the TV channel, the woman, together with her husband Eugene, came to a meeting with representatives of Jugendamt (department for youth affairs in Germany) in order to meet with the children. However, one of the police officers tried to take the phone away from Seibert. She, in turn, asked for help from the defender.
It is noted that the lawyer explained the actions of Yugendamt’s employees by the fact that the woman had asked officials before such an incident to show their identity documents. She filmed the whole process with her phone camera.
Earlier, on February 19, Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Pyotr Tolstoy said that three children were taken away from Russian citizens who live in Germany. He said that on the evening of February 8, the police broke into their house. According to the parents, the police did not introduce themselves. Yevgeny was beaten, then the authorities drove the children out into the street and took them away in an unknown direction.
On the fact of the incident, Tolstoy sent appeals to the Foreign Ministry, the Russian ambassador to Germany.
