STATEMENT ON DEPORTATION OF FATHER SERAPHIM

Monday, 18 January 2016 12:31

The Embassy of the Russian Federation condemns the deportation of a Russian citizen, Father Seraphim, by the immigration authorities of the Chennai International Airport. Unacceptable is the fact that Russian diplomats were denied for seven hours the contact with the priest at the airport. He was also denied basic assistance, including food, despite the requests from the Embassy and the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Chennai. Such disrespect, shown to a priest from a friendly country, goes against the spirit of mutual affinity and cooperation characteristic of Russian-Indian relationship.
