Robert Greenall - BBC News

A Russian girl who was taken away from her father after she drew an anti-war picture at school has been handed to her estranged mother, authorities say.

Russia's children's commissioner Maria Lvova-Belova said teenager Masha Moskaleva had at first not wanted to go to her mother, but changed her mind.

Her father Alexei received a jail sentence as a result of the drawing, but his whereabouts are unknown.

Masha was placed in care after her father was arrested in March.
