Scores of people have demonstrated against Norway demanding the release of 15 Russians children, who like the two Indian kids were taken into protective custody by the Scandinavian nation's child services.

The protests, organised by 'Young Guards' and the movement 'Russian mothers' against Norwegian Child Welfare Service, were held outside Norway's diplomatic missions in Moscow, St Petersburg, Murmansk and Arkhangelsk on Monday.

The aim of the protests is to demand the release of 15 Russian children who have been separated from their Russian parents and placed in Norwegian foster families, 'The Nordic Page' reported.

Maya Kasaeva, one of the protesters, says that she has been deported to Russia after her son was taken 8 years ago.

The protesters claimed Norway categorically refuses to sit down at the table and discuss it despite Russia's efforts to start negotiations on the issue, the report said.

The protests came after Russian media recently carried a series of stories about how more and more Russian women living in Norway are deprived of their children.

Notably, two Indian children Aishwarya, 1, and Abhigyan, 3, were taken away by the child welfare officials in Norway in May last year and placed in foster care.
