    VIENNA (Sputnik) - The Russian Embassy in Austria said Tuesday that it had sent a request to the Austrian Foreign Ministry to provide information regarding a girl from Russia, who was allegedly abducted in Vienna.

    “The Embassy has sent a note to the Austrian Foreign Ministry with a request to the Austrian side to provide information about the course of review of the above-mentioned claim. We have not received an official response to our request so far. We stay in contact with the Austrian law enforcement agencies,” the embassy wrote on Facebook.

    According to the embassy, a Russian citizen requested the assistance of the diplomatic mission over a suspected abduction of her 3-year-old daughter in Vienna in late December. The consulate provided the woman with all necessary help in filing a claim with the Austrian law enforcement agencies in relation to the incident.
