“THE sadistic mother and stepfather who made their son kneel on a pile of buckwheat – causing it to grow into his skin – have been jailed.
They forced their son to kneel on buckwheat crops for nine hours at a time as part of a cruel punishment.
The boys knees were bloodied from where he was forced to kneel on the sharp kernels for up to nine hours at a time.
His dad can be seen kicking him in this video released to the court.
The boy’s dad, 35-year-old Sergey Kazakov, and mom, 27-year-old Alina Yumasheva, carried out the painful punishment on their son for 10 days in a row, according to a court in Omsk, Russia.
Kazakov and Yumasheva were found guilty of “inflicting physical and psychological suffering” to their son, Denis, through “systematic beatings and other violent actions,” Metro UK reported.
The boy, who possibly faces adoption as he has been placed into an orphanage, needed the buckwheat roots to be surgically removed from his knees after they began growing in his skin.
His torture only ended when he fled the family home and pleaded with a neighbor to help, showing his horrendous wounds.
Yumasheva claimed she and Kazakov found this form of punishment on the internet and inflicted it on the child after he was late home from school and playing outside.
The couple of also starved the boy for up to four days at a time, claim state investigators.”
…and they sent this boy back to live with his mother, presumably in the same house this all took place in.
He pleaded for this not to happen.
