    I understand why she stole them… Who wants to give her kid away??? If father was not so cruel he wouldn’t lose his kids. It’s terrible when man is taking your baby from you just because he is selfish or because he hates you. If man is really loves his kid who wouldn’t take it form the mother.

    Thank you for again featuring my step-daughter. She was taken to Russia by her mother in an attempt to control her soon to be ex-husband, Sophia’s father. Sophia’s father is a good man who loves his children very much. These poor girls have been used as a tool for Bogdana’s evil. One day when they are grown they will know the truth and this website will serve as one of the many avenues in which they will come to find this out.

    There was a temporary custody plan in place that Bogdana broke when she left. Her father was following it where both had “joint” custody of Sophia. Nobody was taking a child away until the mother fled the country. The mother has taken the child away from her father. A sin. God will sit in judgement of her even if no court will. Russia is not a part of the Hague Convention and the State Department has many other similar cases in which the US has little authority. Please pray for all the other children out there who have been abused and victimized in this way.

    We love you Sophia and Isabella!!!

    Speaking of sins since you started this… is that a sin to sleep with married man whose wife is pregnant? Is it a sin to make money on public emotions stating you are collecting to “return kids home” while only thing you need is to fly there with mother, nobody prevented him from obtaining visa and flying. Oh, wait, it’s not only a sin but it’s also a fraud since you will not provide where they money you asked for were really spent. How about putting mother in jail and making children orphans? Do you care what they eat/where they sleep, are they in orphanage? Is that enough sins to get to hell for you? Sorry, I’m a Buddhist. So I’m pretty sure karma will get its way really fast and you will be left pregnant alone while he will take everything for you and bring in new chick. Read it after 2 years and don’t complain that nobody told you. Once a cheater is always a cheater.

    I knew there was more to this story. No single woman who is 7 or 8 months pregnant would just up and travel to another country with a 1 year old in tow creating hardships and stress…unless she had no other options. Sounds like husband was reliable/didn’t care and the mother simply went home to her family in Russia in order to have the necessities of life when her 2nd child was born. No sane woman wants to be alone with an unreliable man and no support system in a foreign country. The father evidentally isn’t too alienated from his daughters in Russia and knows their whereabouts or he wouldn’t know the name, birth date, or have a current picture of the daughter born in Russia. By falsely claiming abduction he avoids all financial responsibilities for the two little girls. He and his new wife must think we’re stupid or something!

    So we basically have another Victoria Innes Carrascosa type situation here. Mother is in jail in the United States while children remain abroad, in this case in Kaliningrad, Russia, and a foreign in this case Russian judge has decided the dual citizen children should remain abroad. This is essentially makes innocent children orphans. At least when the children were “abducted/missing” they had a parent with them to take care of them, but when uncompassionate courts impede the parent from being with the children then everyone loses especially the children. Unfortunately these cases are not all rare or unusual. It’s very saddening to think a supposedly loving and concerned parent would be vindictive enough to file a warrant and have their ex arrested at the expense of their children’s well-being. How’s this man going to ever explain to his daughters that he’s the reason they’re alone in Russia with relatives without a Daddy or Mommy?

    Mom going to Russia in the first place had nothing to do with it?

    Two wrongs don’t make a right. Too many parents do vindictive things to hurt the ex and end up hurting the children. It is better to be abroad with one parent than no parent at all. As long as both parents are free there is a parent to care for the children and always the option to arrange access formally or informally for the other parent. Dad at least got phone and Skype access while the Mom was in Russia with the children, but now that Mom is in jail in the United States, the children have no parental care or contact at all.

    I agree parents do vindicitive things, like kidnapping their kids to other countries.

    She has the key to her cell in her own hands; all she has to do is return the kids to the US. If she’s willing to travel to Kansas on her own she can’t be that averse to being there.

    Victoria Carrascosa’s mother was not and still is not free to return her to the United States, unless she wants trouble with her own Spanish authorities. Once it is an international matter it is not so simple to resolve. Kaliningrad courts have decided the children should stay in Russia even with relatives same as Victoria, which means now both parents have to travel to the children in Russia unless there is a reversal. The relatives don’t have the authority to bring the children to the United States. Don’t misunderstand I believe 100% both parents regardless of nationality should see their children, but I don’t think parents should allow their bickering to negatively impact the children. As to why the mother travelled to Kansas last month, well she does also have an older child a son I believe with her 1st husband which is another situation entirely. From what I understand Dad intentionally waited until he knew Mom would be in Kansas then had her detained to prevent her returning to their children in Russia. You cannot justify that level of vindictive cruelty. Is keeping her here in jail helping or harming the children? Is all of this public drama and bitterness promoting their best interests? Is it allowing them fair access to either of their parents, mind you that now Mom is in US jail father has 0 access to his children? I will not respond again, but this situation is incredibly sad and not about saving any children but rather about punishing an ex partner.

    Yes Sophia’s mother, like most non-custodial mothers, do things to be vindictive against the other partner.
    Here’s hoping that these children will be returned to the United States.

    It’s sad to see some jumping to the conclusions they have regarding this situation. My current wife and I did not start dating until after my divorce was final. Documents and events that transpired collaborate this fact. I never cheated on her. I was the abused in my marriage. I decided to end the abuse and get a divorce while continuing to support my children and provide her and the children a home, vehicle, and dollars. She refused to accept the divorce. The only leverage she had at that point was to take the children away from me. I have countless emails where she pleads with me to drop the divorce and she would return. I could not go back to an abusive marriage.

    If this was reversed and I was the woman on this end there would be nothing but compassion for my cause. How would you feel as a parent if your spouse did the same to you? Regardless of gender? Would you just give up getting your children back? Give in to countiess demands including money to see your children? It comes down to it that she has made this situation into what it has become. I had given her countless opportunities and offers over three years for her to return and we share custody. She refused. An offer as such was even filed with the courts to enable her return both financially and custodially. I would never deny my children their mother like she has done their father. All she has to do is have the children returned. They can have both parents in their lives. Her mother lives in tthe US along with her stepfather. She would not be here alone as you might think. Her first husband would also like to see his son and has also been deprived his parenting rights by Bogdana. He is a US citizen as well.

    Say a prayer that God will enter this womans heart and do the right thing…have her children be raised by their parents.

    @Brian Mobley, if your ex-wife was truly abusive then why didn’t you call the police and have the incidents documented and/or press domestic violence charges against her? Why did you wait until AFTER she absconded with the children to Russia whilst heavily pregnant to claim she was abusive? Of course your ex-wife is the assumed victim because she was pregnant and seemingly abandoned in a foreign country by her husband justifying her decision to return to Russia to her family. However if what you say is true, your ex-wife is a naturalised US citizen and her mother and stepfather are in the United States, who exactly have she and the children been living with in Russia for the past nearly 4 years and what prevented her from simply going to her parents’? I also find it rather strange that your ex-wife has an older American born child from her 1st husband, yet you are the only father to accuse her of domestic violence and vindictive international child abduction. While I sincerely hope you are soon reunited with your daughters in either the United States or Russia, I cannot say that I accept your explanation for your ex-wife’s abrupt flight to Russia.

    Does every mother get out of commiting a crime because it’d be too hard to explain to their kids they have to go to jail?

    She kidnapped them. She was told to come back. She did not. A warrant was issued for her arrest. (And since Russia wouldn’t have extradited her, the only way she would be arrested would be to come back to the US.) If she’s so afraid of her ex, why come back to the exact same place he is?

    Would you be okay with your ex taking off to another country with your kids?

    Mothers can and do kidnap their kids. If there’s a custody order they ignore, a warrant can be issued for them.

    I’m pretty sure most people don’t think their ex will take off with the kids until it happens.

    If kids need moms, are kids whose moms die shortly after they’re born screwed?
