I can help in many questions relating child abductions to Russia. I can give some useful tips how to deal with your situation. I can help with relationships in some GUS cities and know other persons with this problem.

Experience in the area

After 4 years I start to learn how Russia works, thanks to good friends here and in Germany. Ask before you spend too much money in the wrong places.


SHG Kindesentziehung (Germany); further taking part in non-public mailing lists about this subject (international).




Besides the relationships I speak Russian quite well.

Awards and Honors

You will not get any honors when your children get abducted (by your partner). In the best case you get some small help. Often you will find officials and people making you the perpetrator although you are the victim.
