Russia: After 20 years of disappearance, lost girl finds parents

Russian Federation, Ryazan and Minsk
September 4, 2019 at 06:41 GMT +00:00 · Published

Twenty four-year-old Yulia Gorina found her parents after twenty years of disappearance and living with an adoptive family in Russia's Ryazan city, as footage released on Wednesday showed in Minsk and Ryazan.

Yulia disappeared at the age of four while travelling on train from Asipovichy town to Minsk in 1999. Her father took a nap and woke up not being able to find his little daughter. Yulia hardly remembers the details of that day.

"I don't remember how I went by train. I only remember how the patrol and sentry service officers found me on the train station 'Ryazan-2'. So, I remember a man who took me off the train and told me to wait for him but he left. Later the officers took me to the police department and booked me before sending me to a counseling service centre for children," said Yulia.

On August 16, Yulia's boyfriend and Ryazan city activist Ilya Kryukov found the details about a little girl's disappearance from those years and tried to compare the description. The information appeared to be factual.

"We found an APB from Belarusian Ministry of Internal Affairs on 'Arshanskaja Gazeta' website that Yulia Victorovna, who was lost on the railway track from Asipovichy town to Minsk on October 1 in 1999, was wanted. If I'm not mistaken, it was connected with the railway track from Asipovichy town. So, we called them after we saw that APB," said Ilya.

Lyudmila and Viktor Moiseenko, Yulia's parents, were looking for their daughter all over Belarus, asking for help from law enforcement agencies, mass media and volunteers. However, Yulia was in Russia during all those years.

Now Yulia is going to visit her parents in Belarus again but doesn't want to change her citizenship, as she lives in Russia with her little daughter.
