Underage Russians are more likely to refer to the Ombudsman for the rights of the child. About the children’s Ombudsman Anna Kuznetsova told the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, reported on the Kremlin website.
According to her, the number of such requests increased by 14.5 percent. In the past year, the unit reviewed 8 thousand hits. Kuznetsov noted that as a rule it is the property issues and issues related to education.
“On the one hand, it is a positive signal that the children trust and write to us. We are open today, and through social networks you can contact us, write directly. But it is alarming that children today are not found adults who can hear their concerns,” said Kuznetsova.
As an example, the children’s Ombudsman cited the case, when she asked pupils from one class who were asked to talk to the school administration. What was the conflict Kuznetsov did not elaborate, but said that he was exhausted.
She also noted that the results of the latest monitoring of the service only 16.5 percent of the educational programs meet current standards. “Unfortunately, in this direction there is still a lot of work”, — said Kuznetsova.
Most violations were detected in children’s homes and boarding schools. According to Kuznetsova, the children are the most vulnerable category. “For me personally it is a litmus test of the General attitude of the region to the theme of childhood. If not protected they are, about what we then can say,” she said.
Earlier, Kuznetsova reported that in Russia the number of children’s suicides has increased since 2017 and has reached nearly 800 cases. Such data indicate that “children left to themselves, they do not hear, the problems that concern them, do not care about anybody,” said the Ombudsman.
