Woman Elopes With Lover, Leaving Her Kids Home Alone

Vladislava Podchapko, 20, abandoned her children for nine days to be with her lover. The young mother of two, Anna and Daniil left her children locked in the house in central Kiev, Ukraine.

Neighbours, however claimed to have heard the children wailing, and informed the police but did not get a response from them.

Her 23-month-old son, reportedly died after 6 days of starvation. For an additional 3 days, his sister was locked in with her brother’s dead body, weak and helpless. Sources claim that the police arrived at the scene after the mother arrived and immediately rushed the girl to the hospital.


The daughter, Anna, 2, was saved at the point of death, one of the doctors attending to the child said;

“The girl was exhausted, she was very weak. She was immediately taken into hospital where we started intravenous feeding. She is better now and we can say that she will live. We have started her on tiny amounts of solid food.”

When confronted by the police about neglecting her children, Vladislava, said;

“I didn’t know that children could die.”

It was also reported, that the children had tried to escape from the locked flat, by pulling and tearing the linoleum by the door. The children were from her previous marriage.

Podchapoko’s two year old daughter, Anna’s, future will be decided by social care workers. “Perhaps she will be sent to an orphanage, or given up for adoption, or if her father can look after her, she may go to him,” said a source.

Vladislava, has been detained and faces up to eight years in prison, for child neglect. She is supposedly pregnant with her third child.
