It has been reported that the children abducted from Florence by their mother Marianne Grin, have been placed in Yeshiva centres in St Petersburg. These institutions house orphans and children from underprivileged families. The three boys are residing in one centre and their sister is living in another institution that takes in girls. The children are not allowed to contact their family and friends in Italy and the US. Since these developments have come to light, there as been a slight shift in the way the case is being reported in the Russian press. However their family have expressed grave concerns regarding their safety and well being. The failure of the Russian, Italian and US authorities to take immediate action in relation to this case is hugely disappointing.
