Social Orphanhood under the Conditions of Depopulation
Markova, N. E.
Russian Education and Society, v53 n5 p85-92 May 2011
Currently, four out of five children in Russia's social rehabilitation institutions are "social" orphans, whose parents are still alive. Many of these children are losing their ability to learn in school, and the use of alcohol and narcotics, and early onset of sexual activity, are damaging their future life. These children are involved in a wide variety of criminal and harmful activities; about 20 percent of prostitutes are minors; and the sex industry is exploiting them through involvement in pornography.
