MOSCOW, December 22 (Itar-Tass) —— The Civic Platform party will be prepared to provide financial support to those Russian families which may agree to adopt children who were about to join their potential step-parents in the United States, but are unable to do so in the wake of the State Duma’s ban on US adoptions in retaliation to the Magnitsky Act, the Party’s leader, Mikhail Prokhorov told a news conference at Itar-Tass.
The Civic Committee met in session on Friday to make a decision each family which agrees to adopt any of the 46 children banned from adoption in the United States will get a lump sum of 50,000 dollars.
“It is absolutely immoral to use children and their lives in any political interests,” he said.
