Dear winky23-ga,

The sculpture is variously described as:

Children the Victims of the Vices of Adults 
A monument to children, suffering from the vices of adults 
Young Victims of Adult Vices 

The vices are listed on this review of the sculpture.

?So, come here some day and you will see Mr. Shemyakin?s incarnations of: 
 Drug Addiction 
 Irresponsible Science 
 Indifference [the centrepiece*!] 
 Propaganda of violence 
 For those without memory 
 Child labour 
perceptibly closing in on two playmates, a girl and a boy.?

I hope this answers your question. If it does not, or the answer is
unclear, then please ask for clarification of this research before
rating the answer. I shall respond to the clarification request as
soon as I receive it.
Thank you
