GORKI, November 12 (Itar-Tass) — Schools for foster parents will be opened in all of Russia’s regions by 2015, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Monday.
“Such organizations for training [foster parents] and supporting children must be established in all regions of this country. And it must be done at least by 2015,” he told his deputies.
“It is necessary to prepare families to bring home to them their responsibility and problems that might arise when they adopt a child,” he said.
“Today, the number of parentless children is going down,” said Olga Golodets, a deputy prime minister. “Whereas in 206 there were 699,000 such children, the number went down to 633,000 in 2011.” However, in her words, there is another negative tendency. “Last year, as many as 4,600 children were returned from foster families,” she said. To reduce this figure, schools for foster parents were set up from September 1 in a number of Russian regions.
