MOSCOW, November 22 (Itar-Tass) — Every tenth Russian child lives in a problem family, Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets told a meeting of the coordination council on the implementation of a national strategy of action in the interests of children.

“Some 12% of children in Russia live in problem families”, she said.

According to the senior government official about 80,000 children still abide in orphanages. Though a majority of the 600,000 orphans in Russia enjoys some kind of guardianship, such a considerable share of children being kept in orphanages, and very often in extremely unfavorable conditions, is a serious problem.

Golodets said that in 2011 some 93,000 children fell victim to criminals, 728 committed suicide and 944 died in road accidents.
