This week's Newsround Extra looks at children in Russia living on the streets.
Many are homeless because their parents have died, or because they've had to leave home because their parents don't want them.
But what do you think should be done to help them?
It just goes to show how lucky we are in more westernised countries. My school send away presents to people in Eastern Europe. It was a fantastic feeling knowing you gave some children their ONLY Christmas presents that year or even their first Christmas presents ever.

I think it's horrific, and I feel so spoilt with what I've got. We could give them money from Comic Relief or something, or at least encourage the Russian government to help. I don't think they realise the truth.

There is nothing more that the Russian government can do. My sugestion is to split Russia into states and have a mini governments in each state that way they could concentrate on things like the children on the streets.

I went to work with street kids in Romania for Christmas with a team of young people - it was amazing. Emotional but yet inspiring. The Russian kids lived in very similar conditions. More should be done, but the Government does nothing. Unless they change, nothing will stop homelessness in countries like Romania and Russia.

There are many adults in the US who live in the streets. If they can't survive harsh winters and can't find jobs, how are these kids supposed to survivie? Something definitely has to be done. Maybe the UN should focus more of their time and money on these kids than on the war against Iraq.

My sister currently works in Russia and I've been told of the horrible conditions for these children. The Russian government needs to pay more attention to them.

I think it's awful that some of them have been thrown out by families and that the adults take to drinking. I couldn't imagine living like that so I'm very lucky.

Yesterday's NR Extra made me see how lucky I am. It's good that charities help them.

I think more should be done to help them - I can't imagine what it's like to have to live on the streets even when it's snowing.
