The Russian Embassy in Washington sent a note to the U.S. state Department. The States are still not officially informed Moscow about the arrest of Russian citizen and charged her with kidnapping her own daughter, although Olga Pimanova was arrested a week ago. Children’s Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov has called this story strange and far-fetched, promising to get mother and protect her three year old daughter.

“The judge, not listening to me, threw me in jail where I lost consciousness. Feeling terrible, because they put me to the killers”

“This note really prepared. It contains a clear statement of what we want,” said the diplomat. In many ways, this step is related to the fact that the Americans a few days since the arrest of Rimanovoi, has not provided any official information about what happened. “No official notification we are still from the American side had not received”, – said Miller.

It became known yesterday that Pimanova detained at the Chicago airport in the USA upon arrival in the country and accused of illegal export to Russia of his daughter – a citizen of Russia, which occurred two years ago.
