Russian Immigrants Arrested/Charged Abuse 7 children :Oleksander Kozlov Lyudmila Kozlov

Posted on December 10, 2009 at 11:00 AMstoptheinvasionoforegon’s comment. People should really go to the State Department site and and find out how many foreigners are being allowed into the US. Immigration should benefit the Existing population, not the people of other nations. In this case, Russians and other Soviet Nations  have brought crime and oppression with them. I met a schoolteacher who said the Old Believers Russians were offended by any story with Witches, so the Narnia books were not allowed to be read in the schools. I am outraged by this and countless other stories of how immigrants are taking advantage of the US and lowering our quality of life. I spoke with an Iranian couple who were shocked when an Iranian friend struck his small daughter on the  face and she was put in foster care. In our country , they said, the man can do whatever he likes to family members.


SALEM, Ore. – In what Department of Human Services officials called a “horrible” case of child abuse, the parents of seven kids were sentenced Thursday to more than seven years in prison.


The state recommended five years for 40-year-old Oleksander Kozlov and 39-year-old Lyudmila Kozlov, but the Salem judge instead gave them the longer sentence of 7 years and three months, each.


The Koslovs were found guilty last week, of nine counts of child abuse. It was their own children who turned them in, calling 9-1-1 from their Lancaster Drive home and telling officers they had been abused since their family arrived in the United States from the Ukraine in 2003. Marion County deputies said they saw “significant evidence” of abuse on the 15, 14 and 13-year-old, and the kids were taken into protective custody.

Following that investigation, police and DHS officials went to the home and took four other children, ages 11, 10, 9 and a six-day old infant in to custody and arrested the couple.

The children told police the abuse sometimes involved hitting them with a looped wire, a belt, spoons, a leather leash or even sticks from the yard.

The two were charged with assault, criminal mistreatment, coercion and unlawful use of a weapon.

The couple’s attorney said there will be an appeal to the seven-year sentence.

Let this be a lesson to parents; keep your kids locked in the basement or cage with no phones!.


This is just another example of discrimination against Russian immigrants. Somebody call pelosi!.

they should be beaten and kept in a wet stinking basement cell for the entire seven years..


vladcash said on December 10, 2009 at 12:41 Illiterate Russian Immigrant trashes US citizens and defends abuse:

What a bunch of nonsense..people in Russia don’t spoil kids like you do it here in US that’s why people in there are better than here..You spoil your kids and they kill you when time comes..This kids who punish their parents will regret what they did for rest of their poor life now..Parents wanted them to grow nice kids but US makes them just another foster child ,drug users,thefts and all you can imagine now….

If you don’t like the way of our country and the law’s, You think we spoil our kids and and let them do whatever they want then go HOME,.

oregongirl said on December 10, 2009 at 1:23 PM

American Brilliantly points out that the Russians either play by our rules or turn in their Greed Card and Self Deport:

julene, amen! I agree whole-heartedly. And vladcash……nevermind, I don’t want to be reported! If people in Russia are better than here, then why are you here? Oh ya, you want a piece of the American pie that you so despise. maybe take a grammar class… this is a case of child abuse plain and simple. Sounds like the children were finally fed up with the cruel abuse they were being dealt. Good for them for having the courage to stand up to their abusers. May they have a peaceful life now and begin the healing process..

lilmel94 said on December 10, 2009 at 4:32 PM

Ya know Just cause they are from Russia DOES NOT give them the right to BEAT their kids! I don’t care where your from or your religious back ground. Its just too bad those poor kids had to go thru that for so long. I’m glad they’re going to jail!.

geezlouise said on December 10, 2009 at 4:43 PM

Oh Where is Veganpeace? I would imagine these people need our sympathy and compassion. As long as someone feels bad about what they did, they should not be punished but should be prayed for and protected from the KKK/Bush/ Police state that we have. You know it probably wasnt even them. I think maybe those bad bad police people some how set them up, or better yet, I think maybe the child is at fault for making her parents so angry? huh Veganpeace? Sound like some of the foulness that you would put forth?.

yamhill354 said on December 10, 2009 at 5:04 PM

Here it is again! People who come to America for a better life! But rather than adapting to the ways and laws of OUR Country they bring the old ways here. Some how this always frustrates me. My ancestors came to America in the 1800’s for a better life too. They were expected to adapt to the American Way of living. Including but not limited to learning English. This one responder states how much better children are raised in Russia. Then why do they not either stay in Russia or return. Heaven Forbid that they would have to live under the conditions here. And what about all the others in their Community and Church. Are they too abusing their children to this extent?.

‘vladcash said on December 10, 2009 at 12:41 PM What a bunch of nonsense..people in Russia don’t spoil kids like you do it here in US that’s why people in there are better than here” YEAH…YOU MAY HAVE SOMETHING THERE…MAYBE THAT’S WHY RUSSIA HAS THE HIGHEST RATE OF ALCOHOLISM IN THE WORLD!.

lilmel94 said on December 10, 2009 at 5:52 PM

Well said! You dont like the way things are here then LEAVE!!.



lilhunny1 said on December 10, 2009 at 6:35 PM

wow, i have so much to say about this..i will try to keep it short..i am a 1.5 generation, my parents came here for a better life..but they never wanted to burden this great country that let them come, they were so greatful just to be allowed in..that was 33 years, we never got public assts..NEVER..what really ticks me off is now that i have worked all my life and paid my taxes and never got help..i thought if i really needed it this great country of ours would help but boy was i is only for these people that come here and never work and hate this country of ours, i have a friend with a business and i see so many of these people come here and abuse the system..they get so much money from state aid like 800.00 to 1500.00 in food stamps they get free health care and cash every month..WHY!!!..then they have the nerve to say this country is not as good as their’s?? but its funny how they come here and keep havin kids so they can get free money..if only all.

lilhunny1 said on December 10, 2009 at 6:38 PM

if all of you could see what i see in a day, you as in US citizens would be as mad as me to read someone from Russia say anything neg about the USA.

 Estonians hate What Americans call Russians. Sorry they came from the Former Soviet Repulic, and it’s just like with the Mexicans, most of the illegals are mexicans, we aren’t going to spend all day breaking them down in Hondureans. The Ukranians are Russians and all the Slavic immigrants should know they are despised by Americans for their hostile exploitave attitude.

They need to learn to lie like the Mexicans and be manipulative and say: we no want to hurt no one we came here for better life that is why we have to steal your social security cards, because the white man no give us all your jobs.

first of all VLADCASH(your nickname probably means that you work for cash and get public assistance) get it straight they are not russians and not from russia they are from Ukraine and this is different…second i agree with lilhunny 100% i came to usa 12 years ago started from a scratch,went to college ,got a job..tthese people do not want to get a job they better have dozens of babies for foodstamps medical housing… for cash like you Vlad….if you cant take care of kids do not have any…stop draining the system… P.S people should know difference between russian and ukrainian 2 different cultures 98% of slavic community in portland are ukrainians who drive mercedeces and infinities to food banks for free food,and welfare offices for foodstamps…..

lilhunny1 said on December 10, 2009 at 7:06 PM

could see what i see every day you would all be amazed..and mad!!!!…when we came here we had to adapt and learn to be americans, why is it now that they dont have to do that??..and they abuse the system on top of all this too..maybe its not their fault maybe its the goverments fault for giving them everything for nothing and making so easy for them to live here and do nothing except complain about how bad america is..but its not just the Russians its the people that come from Africa as well..they dont want to give up they way they lived there but wants all the benefits of being americans…mean and, i am not suprised that these parents abused their children…by the way this is the first time i have ever written in one of these comment pages…

speakthetruth said on December 11, 2009 at 11:16 PM

I hope the Mrs is too old to have any more kids when she gets out of the joint. That is a rather short sentence, since she will be out in less than 5 years unless she acts up in prison. As for having her children taken, that is for the good of the kids, and should not be counted as “punishment.”.

oremom said on December 12, 2009 at 6:50 AM

As a former neighbor, whose children were repremanded by these parents for being kids(noisy while playing), I am glad that the children finally became American enough to stand up for themselves..

    The fools in Washington don’t have a clue, about the consequence of calling for another Comprehensive Immigration Reform package. Has anybody really got any conceivable idea of the ramifications, once President Obama and his political troops whisper AMNESTY. It will be like the final Marconi radio SS (Save our Souls) urgent message from the sinking HMS Titanic? Those perpetrators who want to pass a bill of Immigration reform, are completely ignorant of the masses of humanity that will be pushing against the border fence. From the tip of South America to the huge continent of Asia, new peoples are already biding their time? It will not matter if E-Verify becomes a permanent fixture or even if Homeland Security fully empowers once again the uniformed police 287 (g) federal immigration detainment bill. Even a sudden surge in ICE raids or any enforcement matters will be completely obsolete, as millions more will be stampeding at the border barrier. It might as not exist, for all the good it will do against millions of destitute, sick, handicapped, pregnant, criminal and just illegal immigrants looking for a better life. Tell me who is going to stop this sudden surge in numbers, that will start moving towards the fence in Canada and the Southern border line. Then we have tourists and students who have arrived for years by aircraft, but never returned to their home country. People trying to cross the undermanned border will never end. Knowing that there is always a chance of another AMNESTY, those who cannot make it in their own country will keep on coming–and never STOP?

    Has anybody with at least one brain cell in their head, considered that

    once somebody yells AMNESTY–everybody and their Grandmother are going to be slipping across the border or boarding a jet to come here. Neither the Border Patrol,

    National Guard or Jesus Christ himself are going to stop, the millions of destitute, uneducated, unskilled foreign labor and all the rest in this behemoth deluge? They will wait for the call to go out and just like the 1986 AMNESTY, they will appear with fraudulent documents, that indicates they have been here 5 years or more. Those 3 million people who were legitimized, turned into 5 million after the Simpson/Mazzoli bill was ratified? We already are subsidizing 20 to 30 million foreign national families, whose going to pay for the unknown number waiting just across the fence? Its going to be the unmentionable mass numbers, exiting from every far corner of the impoverished countries on this Earth to be departing for America. GOD HELP THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND ITS SURVIVAL.

    So get on the phone and demand as a voter for your lawmaker to vote for THE SAVE ACT (H.R. 3308) and be relentless. The number to call is 202-224-3121. Also bombard the House-Senate policy makers with 28 cent postcards, to stop the open border organizations from engineering another Path to citizenship or AMNESTY. Tell them to amend the 1986 Immigration Reform Act, not another facade that was a bloated with fraud. Understand that THE SAVE ACT will protect American jobs and remove illegal immigrants from working locations over time. Those who believe in America’s survival, without OVERPOPULATION as stated by the US Census bureau better read the facts, not the lies at NUMBERSUSA. Those who want details of corruption in WASHINGTON and state government go to JUDICIAL WATCH. For Overpopulation statistics, should go to CAPSWEB. Other sites of interest on Immigration enforcement is ALIPAC and AMERICAN PATROL.

    the 3 older children children should ask god to forgive them for what they done to the parents

    • alla says:

      I was born in Russia and was raised here in America – and was too abused by my dad. I never went to police for this though. BUT I WANTED TO!!! Both of my brothers now have severe back problems because of the beatings bestowed on them. I love my dad, he is really sorry for what he’s done (All in the name of Bible) but there is always something holding me back from being completely honest and open with him.

  3. eugene says:

    the children are liars .The parents where just disciplining their children.

  4. nat says:


    u guys never know what really happen! the kids could be lying, or maybe the parents did beet them too hard , that’s dumb yes but , the kids will regret it later ill bet anyone for 1000,000.00 bucks the kids were mad at that time and they thought they will payback but , later on they are the one who will be crying later and asking god for forgiveness, and another thing is they are not Russian so stop saying shit about Russians , and another you Americans are immigrants too so shut your holes, the only true American are Indians, and if it would of not been for immigrants your sorry ass America would of been the poorest country cause you are all dumb people, well not all there are some but they are all mixed with other countries that’s why there more good looking and smarter, why does all immigrants have better houses and cars, and dress better, and you red necks have shit, lets see why America is clean , cause Mexicans work hard, trust me if you say American is smart then it would not be scared of Russian army. they would have good aircraft and guns, but you guys go and buy them from other countries, cause you have no brains to think your self. just because they got hit by there parents it does not mean shit that means they needed it, they didn’t die did they ? no!! they wanted freedom! well now they have it, but it wont be there for long and the foster parents wont be there for long either, they wont have the mother love, no matter how a mother beets her child she still would of killed for them too! look at American kids they yell and kill and say bad words , and look at Russian and immigrant kids do you see them yelling in the middle of the store wanting a toy or some shit, hell no cause they know they will get there ass kicked and when they grow up they will do the same, don’t beet the child but discipline them, that’s all, there is low class in every country . i am tiered of people calling 911 for little things go catch killers and robbers, and phyco people, not for little beating and people make a big deal about it.

  5. Lyudmila says:

    First of all, I apologize on behalf of all writers from our nation for bad spelling and cursing. Looks like only younger generation had a chance to say something on chat about this family’s case. I want to say that people don’t come here to be on food stamps. They don’t have any idea about America’s government system back there. People don’t give a birth to many children just to get assistance. They are not that stupid. Most of them are working right away when they come here like Lyudmila Kozlova was cleaning the houses, or going to college to learn English and a career like Aleksander Kozlov did. All Russians/Ukrainians are very-very hard working people. They are not such lazy and careless as someone compared them to African Americans that are on welfare. You have to remember that the economy changed dramatically in the past year and many people lost their good paying jobs and houses. Now, they have to turn to government assistance for help. That’s what they paid income taxes for. This is the case with Americans too, not just immigrants. And, don’t be so jealous for somebody drive a nice car. That they could afford couple years ago with earned income, not food stamps. Many people buy cars on auctions after accident for a lot less and fix them up with their own hands. They didn’t get it from a dealership for a full price. A lot of Russian/Ukrainians had small construction businesses, or worked on construction jobs, but we realize, there is barely any construction going on right now. Please, don’t blame all community for some few people’s guilt. That’s wrong. Lyudmila and Aleksander Kozlov didn’t have kids to be on government assistance. They had 6 kids in Ukraine, and the 7th was born 9 years after. Plus, Crhristians have a fear of God to use birth control. It might be a sin, who knows. Regarding, the punishment: the kids nowadays are very disobeying and disrespecting, the Bible said they will be. The biggest weapon against devil’s power on our kids is endless prayer and fasting. Looks like these kids became full of hate and anger to their parents. This kind of age doesn’t like to be under control. They probably did spank them, but not to the extent kids described the policemen and the news reported. Obviously, they didn’t bit them up every day and for as long as the boy is describing. It’s all exaggerated. I keep guessing that kids bit each other up to make everything so severe. It’s not possible that parents can bit up a child so badly. They love them and want them to obey and grow up polite and nice. The older boy is obviously not respectful of everything parents do for him since he turned them in. He should of gone to the pastor of the church first instead and complained. I think the parents should have a warning or probation first instead of such severe punishment and all kids taken away even a little baby that needs mother’s warmth, love, and care. That’s inhumane, too. I assume those parents ask God for forgiveness every day since that awful July day and ask Him to turn their kid’s hearts to them and reunite whole family. We all pray for them here in Idaho. God’s mercy, please come up on this family. Thanks for reading.

    Its interesting to me how many people in the Slavic community are targeted for “abusing” their children. Their is a couple in my church who was one of these targets. And do you know what happened to them? The judge apologized to them for the the grief the system had caused their small family. You see, she went to see their 14 month baby’s family doctor. The child was very ill and the doctor prescribed him medication. On the warning label, it clearly stated possible side affects. When she brought the child back in when she noticed bruises covering his body, the doctor automatically called CPS and her baby was taken away from her. Now for all you smart Americas who are thinking that that was her excuse, i ask why she would bring the child in to be seen if she was at fault, knowing what could happen? she went through months and months of court dates, trials, and lawyers. For what? An apology. Now i see story’s on the news of mothers drowning their children in bath tubs and cutting their boyfriends into pieces and flushing them down the toilet (that’s a true story by the way) Now about what % do you think, of all those ppl, are Slavic? oh and by the way, Everyone immigrated to America at one time or another, other that Native Americans. Wether it was your parents, your grandparents, or your great grandparents. You still immigrated. From Asia, Europe, Norway…. you get my point. So if your going to tell the Russian community to “go back were you came from”, I think its only fair to say it to every so-called “american”. Go back to were YOU came from. 50 years ago people would have laughed at this. You take parents away from their children, and were do the children go? To a system that is so corrupt. To “foster homes” were they leave children in cribs crying with dirty diapers. Its called laziness. You ask why Russians and Ukrainians drive nice cars? Because they are not afraid to work for want they want.
    Well, their are always exceptions to every rule. I feel sorry for those children whose parents were taken away from them. They will go for the rest of their live regretting their choices, and little baby girl will not even know her mother after the seven years are up And for anyone who would reply something like “she does not deserve to see her”, you are an evil human being and need to crawl back in whatever hole you crawled out of.

  7. Lucy says:

    i feel so sorry for the parents and the kids. i wish those kids talked to thier lovely parents instead of going to the police. seems to me the police was not helpful and the family was destroyed. minor kids including newborn baby was taken away from parents who loved them and gave them birth to strangers. seems to me that those kids had a plan and they were waitng for a moment. i wish the police had knowedge frst time to talk to the parents to give them some advice. police of all people know the most how hard it is to deal with kids these days. i wish the police would tell the kids to obey thier parents. thier parents are not alcoholics or drug abusers. spanking or hitting kids instead of finding a way to talk to them does not help much. maybe these parents and kids needed some advice. it is very hard raising 3 teenagers on top of 4 other small children. in todays schools, kids see any kind of evil things and in which they try to copy. when parents try to stop them the kids end up hating the parents. but later the kids are thankful for thier parents for raising themin the right way and preparing them for future. just time will show will give better care to those children. i keep asking the same qestions: why? four minor children who were not aboused including 6 day old baby after 11pm, were grabbed from their beds against ther will, crying, taken away to strangers. i would call this children abuse by government system. this situation in which the “police” tried to “fix” to “protect” left a much bigger mark on the minor childrens’ hearts then bruises on the teenagers.

    You all piople that talk crap about this people , you lost your mine becouse your mother give you birth with a side effects after a birth control pills . You should read what these pills do ?
    And the rest of you should figured out why they go after our kids.
    These kids was staffed with a pills or had a shot to talk against their parents.I know what I’m saing because know cases after kids was relised and kids tolld about it .The CPS give them pills.Thats unpossible for kids to talk like thet about their parents if they are in their mine.
    I’m 33 , and I look back when my parents spanking me for my good behavier I tell them”THANK YOU DAD & MOM THAT YOU DID “. Because I see lots of my freinds that come here only month sooner then me and where they end up now.All of them beeing arrested lots of time and at the end they end-up in jail or prison, just because theirs parents spoiled them. None of them even finish the High School.Got married because they slaped with a gril and made a kid, got stock with not one that love him or he love.If parents spank a kid ? They do it for their good.And if a kid may be got a broose ? because when a parent try to spank him or hire they twist and try to get away , because they are a live and when they desserved it hirt.
    And cops out there dont come and tell parent to pay fine after he/she got them selfs into drugs or even worst.
    Only smart parents know what I’m talking about. I did not understand this till I got my own.
    Rest of you wont even understand this.Because you mem love men & you women love women how could you have your own kids you look into other family to distroy reall family.You are “Sodom &


  9. venic says:

    I want to say that almost every parent in russia uses a belt or spanks their kids when they missbehave to a certain level, this isn’t child abuse instead this shows that you care for the child’s well being when he will grow up… people are more intelligent, respectful and well mannered in russia as a result of a strict discipline as children… a child needs to fear the belt becouse that will keep him from misbehaving.. when I was small I also wanted to call the cops for being spanked, but when I got older and wiser I am very thankfull for the strictness that that my parents raised me in, it is better than any medication. Putting kids on ridellin should be counted as child abuse.. furtehrmore, the reason why russians come to USA is not becouse they don’t like the russian people but becouse of the economy… so don’t be ignorant

    • stoptheinvasionoforegon says:

      I am glad the police took the kids seriously so as to put the russians on notice that they are not living in Russia any longer.
      as to Russians coming to the US, every Russian should understand that they came as a burden to the American people and they have repaid with criminal behavior
      The American People do not owe the People of Russia jobs housing food or our country,
      It was another huge mistake by the State Department, not that the State Department ever does anything right.
      Thanks for all the Criminals
