The Finnish migration service and the Helsinki Administrative Court have made another decision on the deportation of refugees from Donbass.

Finnish human rights activist Johan Backman told Interfax on May 28 the people are "gravely ill old people who previously lived in the Donetsk Tekstilshchiki district."

Backman said "they must return there, although there is no power supply, water or heating there, the apartment is destroyed and the old people are ill and have difficulty walking."

Backman said their daughter lives in Finland and has Finnish citizenship.

The human rights activist said the court decision is similar to the decision made on the Tatyana Imatova case.

According to earlier reports, the Helsinki Administrative Court has decided to deport to Kiev Tatyana Imatova, a resident of Donbas, and her 7-year-old son. Tatyana\'s husband is a militiaman and her parents live in Finland.
