Russian Mom Kills Baby and Son, Jumping 190ft With Kids in Her Arms

After a battle with postnatal depression, a mother murders her newborn infant and 3-year-old boy by plunging 190 feet from a Moscow tower block with her children in her arms.

After leaping over 200 feet from a tower block with the two children in her arms, a mother is accused of killing her newborn infant and toddler son.

Olga Zharkova, 34, and her two kids, three and one month, died in a fall from a Moscow apartment on the 19th floor.

Her death, as well as the deaths of her two small children, has prompted police to begin a murder investigation.

Investigators believe she was suffering from acute postnatal depression before murdering herself and her children in the 190-foot fall.

Olga is said to have penned a statement stating that she did not want to leave her children in this “hard, bleak environment.”

‘She told her friends she was depressed after having a baby,’ a law enforcement source told Komsomolskaya Pravda. ‘She was lonely and exhausted.’

As she fell, the mother-of-two, who is also the wife of a Russian military commander, clutched her two children in her arms.

When her military officer husband arrived to the scene, he was treated for shock.

According to sources citing law authorities, she had previously complained that her husband Dmitry, 35, was gone from home for long periods of time on military duty.

The murders of the two toddlers have prompted the Russian Investigative Committee to initiate a murder investigation.
