Children Are the Victims of Adult Vices is a group of bronze sculptures created by Russian artist Mihail Chemiakin. The sculptures are located in a park in Bolotnaya Square, Balchug, 2,000 feet (610 metres) south of the Moscow Kremlin behind the British Ambassador's residence.
The sculptures are of thirteen figures, which depict adult vices, such as alcoholism, drug addiction, and prostitution, that affect children. The figures are perceptibly closing in on two unaware playmates, a girl and a boy, with the centrepiece figure being 'Indifference'.

Amazing place. Must see in Moscow

I thought this was going to be a park of statues, but it's one piece with multiple statues. The concept sounds odd, but I think it makes sense when you see it. It's a well done piece that should be viewed from all sides.

Very well-done and thus thought-provoking! One of my favorites.

One of the best monuments in Moscow. This place touched me with the message it wants to pass to us....

A famous monument by Mikhail Shemyakin was unveiled in 2000. The composition includes fifteen sculptures, among them two kids and thirteen allegorical vices, like War, Ignorance, Indifference, Alcoholism, Theft, etc.

Nice Park around. And the sculpture itself is very interesting.
