Authorized under the RF President on the rights of the child Anna Kuznetsova recommended that the region develop a programme for the creation of conditions for comfortable and safe stay of children on the street which will contribute to reducing child mortality in case of accidents.

As reported by the children’s Ombudsman at a press conference «Summing up all-Russian action «safe childhood», according to the Investigative Committee for the period of summer vacations 2018 killed 492 children, of whom 343 were drowned. This is more than last year, which killed 294 people.

«Seeing the current situation in the regions, we would like to offer to encourage the regions to develop and adopt programme on creation of conditions for comfortable and safe stay of children on the street. The key word here is «safe» because sometimes even the children’s facilities infrastructure represent a danger. And those who are responsible for this, in the afternoon with fire will not find,» said Kuznetsova.
