On the previous day, at about 22:00 a policeman of the Police Patrol Service (PPS) of the MIA of Russia Administration for Kemerovo, police Sergeant Aleksandr Ryabkov, moving on his car in the Kirovsky District of the regional center, noticed a small girl walking along the road. The policeman was alarmed that at that late time she was on the street unaccompanied by adults.
The police officer stopped and from the conversation with the girl found out that she had lost her mother. Aleksandr Ryabkov took the child to the “Kirovsky” police division of the MIA of Russia Administration for Kemerovo. Colleagues told the policeman that the little citizen lived in the Central district of the city and her parents had already applied to the police for help in finding their daughter. It turned out that the mother of the 7-year-old girl, when boarding a shuttle-bus, took the youngest child in her arms and did not notice that the elder daughter did not have time to enter the bus. Having discovered the absence of the child, the woman returned to the bus stop in a few minutes, but she did not find her daughter on the spot. The baby decided to catch up with her mother and got on the next bus, which proceeded to the Kirovsky District of the city. At the last stop, the girl left the public transport and went to look for her parents.
The police handed the child over to her mother and held a preventative conversation with the woman. The resident of Kemerovo thanked the police for their help and promised to closely watch the children.
The leadership of the MIA of Russia Administration for Kemerovo awarded an honorary diploma for professional actions to the policeman (driver) of a mobile platoon of a company from a detached battalion of the Police Patrol Service of the MIA of Russia Administration for Kemerovo, police Sergeant Aleksandr Ryabkov.
