On June 23, in Moscow, police found five babies aged six days to six months in an apartment on Argunovskaya Street in the northeast of the city, as well as two women caring for them.

The scheme was as follows - future Russian parents who tried to have children with the help of IVF donated their cells most often to the Petrovskie Vorota clinic in the capital. Embryos were grown there, but the parents were told that out of the conditional ten, only one survived. And the clients, according to the contract, carried the child by a surrogate mother, and the remaining embryos were stolen and planted with completely strangers. Source:

Another addition: In addition to doctors, the group included the head of the European Surrogacy Center Vladislav Melnikov, lawyer Roman Emashev, translator Kirill Anisimov and head of the law firm Konstantin Svitnev - a man hiding in the Czech Republic. Svitnev has four children, who, according to documents, were born by surrogate mothers on the same day. Vladislav Melnikov told everywhere that he himself was engaged in the selection of a surrogate mother for Alla Pugacheva and Maxim Galkin. But later it turned out that Melnikov helped to adopt children and LGBT couples. This is not surprising - in the apartment of the head of the surrogacy center, his very close friend was found, who was so scared that he fainted on their shared bed.
