A 12-year-old schoolgirl who became pregnant at the age of 11 by her stepfather or one of her two brothers will receive DNA evidence live on TV. Yes, you read this right! A girl named, “Tanya Luchishin” earlier claimed that the father of her five-week-old daughter was her 18-year-old neighbour named Andriy but DNA evidence showed that the baby was not his.
Tanya later said that she had suffered sex attacks at the hands of her stepfather, brother and half-brother. Her stepfather said: “I would not have come here if I had anything to do with the pregnancy of my step-daughter. I am ready to undertake a DNA test and to prove that I am not the father of this child.”
“I am afraid of nothing. I don’t want to live when people are pointing their figures at me, at my wife. I never had any relations with Tanya, I could not even think about it.”
On the other hand, a psychologist, Vlada Berezyanskaya, who examined the girl for the programme, said: “This girl…is simply afraid. She is depressed now. Tanya is a child, she is guilty of nothing.”
Presenter Andrey Danilevich, from Inter TV, claimed:
“The girl, who got pregnant at the age of 11, is, in any case, is the victim of adult irresponsibility and manipulations. Now almost all the men in Borislav town who visited the Luchishin family are under suspicion, including the girl’s stepfather and brothers.”
