Parents dump three and two naked children in Ukrainian homeless camp & # 39; so that they could get some rest & # 39;
Parents dumped their young sons in a Ukrainian homeless camp where they drank naked for a week among drunken homeless people, & # 39; so that their parents could get some rest & # 39 ;.
Andrey, three, and his younger brother Maksim, two, spent a week last week in squalor in Zaporizhia, drinking from a river, foraging through trash, and watching homeless men.
Mother Bozhena Synychka, 20, and father Volodymyr Zaitsev, 25, abandoned the boys because they were "tired of taking care of them," local media reported.
A wanderer, Sergey, 42, told local media: & A young couple came and asked to take care of their children. The boys were completely naked and barefoot.

Mother Bozhena Synychka (left), 20, and father Volodymyr Zaitsev (right), 25, left the boys because they were "tired of taking care of them", local media reported.
& # 39; The parents said they would go to a store to buy some food and be back in 20 minutes. Then they left and never came back. & # 39;
The following week the homeless people shared their small amounts of food with the abandoned children and watched over them to prevent them from injuring themselves, according to local media.
On August 26, a female passerby, Olena Tashevska, accidentally saw the toddlers among the tramps and alerted the police.
She said: & # 39; I had free time and went to the Dnipro river. I was looking for a place to sunbathe when I staggered the wanderer's camp.
& # 39; I was terrified to see two little boys lying there on dirty blankets. They were naked and extremely dirty. I immediately called the police. & # 39;
Officers arrived on the scene accompanied by an ambulance. While the police were interviewing the homeless, paramedics examined the brothers and got dressed.

Police spokeswoman Dina Kurnikova said: & # 39; The children lived as & # 39; Mowgli & # 39; boys. They wore no clothes and drank water from the river.
& # 39; The boys were constantly hungry and searched for food on the nearest beach and dived into bins. & # 39;
Andrey and Maksim were taken to the hospital and were diagnosed with colds and malnutrition.
Pediatrician Taisa Klimenko of Zaporizhia Children's Hospital # 1 said: The boys suffer from viral infectious diseases and malnutrition. They are weak now and can hardly walk. & # 39;
& # 39; The children know their names and ages. They don't ask about their parents at all. & # 39;
When the police found the mother, Synychka and father, Zaitsev, they told officers that they were tired of looking after the boys and needed some rest & # 39 ;, local media reported.

It is understood that Synychka and Zaitsev earn money by searching for metal scrap and selling it.
The police have now launched a criminal investigation against the parents for not performing their parental duties. The suspects are confronted with a maximum of five years in prison if they are found guilty.
Local social services are going to sue parents and deprive them of their parents' rights.
