IRINA POPOVA, RUSSLAND

GEFÄHRDETE KINDHEIT

Wenn Mama und Papa, beide drogenabhängig, vor sich hindämmern, ist Anfisa sich selbst überlassen. Sie lehnt aus dem Fenster der verwahrlosten Wohnung in Sankt Petersburg, Zigaretten sind Spielzeug. Die Eltern des zwei Jahre alten Mädchens gehören zur Punkszene der Stadt und sind seit fünf Jahren ein Paar.

Sie stehlen Lebensmittel aus dem Supermarkt und betteln um Geld auf der Straße.  Anfisa hat das Recht, sich  "gesund zu entwickeln". So will es die UN-Konvention der Kinderrechte. Wer setzt ihren Anspruch durch, wenn die Eltern versagen?
