US: & Russia: US withholding data on fate of orphaned Russian-American boy – children’s rights commissioner
Russia Today – August 28, 2017
The US is not providing Russia with any information on a 9-year-old boy who lost both of his parents in a series of tragic events last week, Anna Kuznetsova, the Children’s Rights Commissioner for the Russian president has said. All attempts by Russian relatives of the orphaned boy, Daniel Morozov, who has dual citizenship, to make contact with him have so far been futile. On August 22, the LAPD shot and killed the boy’s father, Konstantin Morozov, 48, who was suspected of murdering his estranged wife and the boy’s mother, Natalia Morozova. Media reports said Morozov was also suspected of the abduction of his son Daniel, who was with him but unharmed in the incident. Daniel was subsequently placed into the protective custody of the Department of Family and Children Services in Los Angeles County.
