The Lipetsk Regional Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of Russia finished investigation of a probe into a 50-year-old resident of Dobrinsky District accused of committing offense under Article 156 of the Criminal Code of Russia (improper performance of responsibilities for the upbringing of a child and abuse).

To remind, the information that became the reason for the intervention of the investigative authorities was revealed during the monitoring of the media and social networks. The message had an attachment of a video recording of parenting methods accompanied by the crying of the child and the foul language of his mother. The investigation established that the mother, having been repeatedly brought to administrative responsibility for improper upbringing of her minor son (Part 1 of Article 5.35 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation), continued improper fulfillment of her parental duties. The fact of mistreatment of a 5-year-old child was captured by a cell phone camera on June 16, 2021. A 50-year-old resident of Dobrinsky District, while in a state of alcoholic intoxication, roughly treats her infant son, beats him, causing physical and mental suffering. Apart from that, the investigation established a fact of leaving the child unattended in the yard in the evening. 

During the investigation of the probe the accused admitted her guilt and repented. Along with that, the evidence collected enough evidence for the probe materials with an approved indictment to be sent to the court.

Previously the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia Alexander Ivanovich Bastrykin requested a report on the progress of investigation.

At the stage of preliminary investigation, the conditions and circumstances were established that contributed to the commission of unlawful acts against the child. Taking into account that the family is dysfunctional and is registered with the bodies of the prevention system, the investigator introduced an idea about eliminating shortcomings in work and bringing to disciplinary responsibility officials responsible for preventing crimes against minors and controlling families prone to antisocial lifestyles.
