MOSCOW, November 10 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin welcomed participants and guests of the first Foster Families Forum, which opened in Moscow on Thursday.
“Upbringing, protection of rights and interests of parentless children is a serious and mostly responsible task,” he said in an address, which was voiced by Russia’s Deputy Minister of Education and Science Maxim Dulinov.
“We should provide every condition to ensure that a child is surrounded with care, that he or she may acquire close and dear people, warmth and cosines of home,” Putin said in the address. “Future of children and the spiritual and moral wellbeing of the entire society depend on how these problems are solved.”
“In my turn, I would like to stress that Russia’s government will always support and provide assistance to foster families, which are attracted to unrelated people, to those who chose to undertake a big mission,” Putin said.
Over 200 participants of the first Foster Families Forum from 50 territories of Russia gathered on Thursday in Moscow to discuss most vital issues. For two days foster parents and adoption and child care authorities will discuss protection of adopted children’s personal and property rights, support for foster families and effectiveness of the programme to train foster parents.
