During a conversation with her, it was found that the first child is raised and fully provided by the ex-husband, he does not even communicate with them. The second child was taken under guardianship by her relative, and Nadezhda herself was deprived of parental rights (there were grounds), the report says.
It is known that Nadezhda gave birth in the maternity hospital of the city of Kyiv, located in the Pechersk district. Employees of the institution immediately noticed that the woman had problems with the use of alcoholic beverages and drugs.
Note! During the conversation, Nadezhda said that she had been living in Kyiv for 7 years. She does not want to go home, but there is neither housing nor relatives in the capital, and therefore she lives with a roommate with his friend in a hostel. He did not refuse the child.
After giving birth, the woman was offered social housing
It should be said that the specialists of the relevant services provided a range of social services to Nadezhda, in particular psychological support, she had just given birth, and also offered her temporary housing – a social apartment.
The mother stated that through the antenatal clinic of the Pechersky district she had an agreement with the Poltava rehabilitation center for mother and child. In early October, volunteers took Nadezhda there.
Important! Nadezhda and her son were in a rehabilitation center from the beginning of October 2022 to March 16, 2023.
Already on March 22, caring people called the center of social services and reported that they had seen a mother with a 5-month-old baby on Boychuk Street. There she lived in a cellar in complete unsanitary conditions, without communications.

Why did Nadezhda run away from the rehabilitation center?
The woman told the experts her story, bluntly stating that she had fled the rehabilitation center from the Poltava region because there were internal regulations. Let's say that each member of the center had responsibilities and could use a mobile phone only during the allotted hours.
According to Nadezhda, it is clear that the specialists of the center helped to issue a birth certificate for a newborn son, a declaration with a pediatrician, examined her, the source says.
At the same time, it is noted that the baby was not groomed properly. Nadezhda said that she was not nice to the boy, but wiped him with wet wipes. In addition, she fed the child with baby cereals only when she found boiled water that people brought.
Did the mother plead guilty?
The police stressed that during a long conversation with Nadezhda and the search for ways to solve her problems, she herself said that she did not want and could not continue to raise her son. The woman directly noted that, “probably, it would be better for her son,” after that she wrote a statement about abandoning the child.
I was told to look for a job. I want my child back. If they don’t return the child to me, then I’ll be honest – I’ll go fight, hang myself, ”she also said in a comment to TSN
