“In the course of four days they were not feeding the children, and did not arrange alternative care for them,” an investigation source said.However, instead of being there to take care of their babies, or at least leave them with someone to care for them, the parents “subjected them to hunger, did not ensure hygiene, leaving the minors were in a socially dangerous state.” Meanwhile, the twins’ grandmother said she had been calling, trying to contact the parents for days. She knew that their area was still under lockdown and became worried when she couldn’t reach them. She immediately called the police out of serious concern for their safety and went to the apartment to check on everyone.
According to the Mirror, the grandmother was the one who found the twins who were in a “gravely emaciated” condition. The twins were rushed to the hospital located in the Kamchatka region. Sadly, the baby boy passed away after he had been in a coma while his sister is still in grave condition fighting for her life. The parents are now facing murder charges and face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
