GROZNY (Chechen Republic), September 1 (Sputnik) — Russian Presidential Commissioner for Children’s Rights Anna Kuznetsova, representatives of Chechen Republic authorities along with over a hundred of the rescued families' relatives met them at the airport. The children and women were escorted out of the plane by special representative of Chechen Republic leader in the Middle East and North Africa, senator Ziyad Sabsabi.
Kuznetsova said that the rescued families could be sent to Moscow shortly after their arrival to Grozny.
"Given that we deal with all the problems, we will fly out to Moscow along with the rescued children today," Kuznetsova told Sputnik.
In August, the Chechen leader said that there could be some 300 children from Russia and from other members of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) in the orphanages of Iraq. Since then, Kadyrov has been actively engaged in rescuing the children and women from war-affected regions of Syria and Iraq.
