MOSCOW, December 19 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Orthodox Church believes that the decision regarding the proposed ban on the adoption of Russian children by US citizens should be based "on a careful analyses and be balanced," a spokesman said on Wednesday.
"It's necessary to weigh everything up before making any top-level decisions," Russian Church spokesman Vsevolod Chaplin told Itar-Tass, "I know that there were many organizations, especially in the 1990s, which took children out of the country by the dozen, if not by the hundred, taking good money from foreign families."
In his opinion, there is a moral aspect to the commercialization of adoption, which inevitably reflects in immoral behaviour towards children.
The Church official noted that along with a large number of successful adoption stories involving Russian children, there were "disputable cases."
"Many Russian families would like to adopt a child, although they don't have as gorgeous conditions as the Americans."
"The idea to take children outside of the country seems to me morally dubious," Chaplin underlined.
