What can be worse than a homeless kid?
Really sad. Western countries have to increase the financial help to the third world countries and especialy Russia. The main problem is that the biggest part of this money will finish in the pocket of corrupted people. For sure, these millions of homeless russians didn’t choose this way of life but have been muscled out after many years of getting abused by mother Russia: ain’t got no choice.
STFU, you have no idea about homeless people in Russia.
Can you explain it?
and this is the dark side of our world (society)
Poor russian people, west countries should increase the financial help to the third world countries and especialy for Russia. Now the winter is coming and it is going to be cold: what will become of these millions of homeless? Everybody here should send a little of money to the russian associations but they are so corrupted that it is not really helpful. Sure, the russian patriots will tell us that these people choosed to live in this way, that it is even worst in USA (everything is worst in USA, everybody knows that Russia is more developped, you can see it every day at the TV..)… but these people after many years of getting abused by Russia are now without strength and decided to move out. They have been mentaly pushed by the great mother Russia out of their own home.
It sounds good to send money. But what works is investing in those who have committed their life to changing this problem. Government agencies is not the answer. Find missions organizations that have a proven track record of stability and effectiveness. Support in a way such as this to truly make a difference.
Just publish my comment, will You?
So sad! The world is full of them – where are their parents? Where’s the rest of their families? What’s happening to the “family” units?
I am growed up in the such places.
Very chic! These kids are trendy! You’ll see stuff like this on Paris runways come Spring.
Not so bad. I have seen worse in india and africa.
It’s nice how they made that underground drain/tunnel their home or hide out.
These pictures appear to be a group of neighborhood kids hanging out togather smoking cigarettes, running around and getting dirty like kids do at that age. It would be great to have more information!
some of these pics deserve a national geographic cover
Homelessness is sad in our societies and is incurable. It’s like that in every capitalist country…
This is just sad, no matter what the reason.
Photo 13 looks like it is Prymorska boulevard leading to Potomkin Steps in Odessa Ukraine. Additional give away’s as to why i think it might be are – the buildings on the left – the cobble stone street next to the buildings – the chained small fence on the left of the park – the park lights on the right particularly the tri light and the cast iron swivel bins one of which is next to the single lamp street light just right of centre. Also the way the terrain falls away on the right which would go down toward the Black Sea and the small (maybe) 1.ft brick fence on the right of the park. If this is Odessa Ukraine i think it might have been a few years ago as these bins have been replaced through out most of the city in a campaign the mayor established for beautification of the city.
A quick google of Prymorsky Boulevard and then click images reveals a few very average photos one of which
shows the small brick fence the lights and the multiple walkways through the boulevard.
The only thing is that in the photo on English Russia the seats are missing compared to the link photo here. I suspect they take them away in winter but i can not remember. They were definately there this summer though.
I’m a photographer and I was curious if anybody could give me any information on the person who took these!
If you have any info please email me:
Most of these kids are orphans who had fled state-provided orphanages because of abuse and neglect. At least this is what happens in my country. I believe this is happening in both capitalist and socialist/communist countries. However the foster care system seems more humane and there is less abuse.
Is there some kind of homeless shelter or a police station they can go to?
Russia – Poor People !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁
who cares… surely you don’t
i thought it was Romania for a moment. they have the same terrible situation. that kind of stuff is killing the spirit. and it’s the young ones too, losing hope before they even know that they are entitled too it. I’ve seen similar in American photos but the they are older and, awh sh* I hate this kind of stuff. It have to be stopped.
whom this may concern, I want to help some homeless kids out that really needs a Home and a christian family to take them in and give them the loving home they really need and will take brothers and sister that wants to stay together…me and my husband deals with the homeless men here in the usa deatur alabama we try to feed them and clothe them and try to get them off the streets too..
I’m Italian and know this reality hurts. Also because the knowledge that no there is protection and defense for a minor that so gets abused and forced to live in a state of total abandonment, it’s a shame. I’m only 18 years but in the future I hope (I really love Russia with all my heart) to succeed, in my small way, to be able to do something. There are no associations or organizations working to help the homeless people (including children) in Russia?
