MOSCOW, January 29 (Itar-Tass) - A total number of Russian children adopted into foreign families last year was 152, including 55 children adopted into the United States, Chairperson of the Moscow City Court Olga Yegorova told journalists with reference to a final annual conference of judges held in 2012.
A total of 157 foster parents appealed to the Russian courts last year, and the adoption was denied only in one case, Yegorova said. There were 59 U.S. citizens among the foster parents asking to adopt a child; at present, four resolutions, passed after a bill which bans adoptions of Russian children by U.S. citizens had already been adopted, have not come into legal force yet, Yegorova said.
We have decided not to give the four kids away because two of them are suffering from Down's syndrome, one is HIV infected, and the fourth one is a victim of oligophrenia, Yegorova said. But we have instructed the guardian organizations to accommodate the kids and brought the matter under our control, the judge said.
The Russian Supreme Court explained that court resolutions on lawsuits filed by foreign foster parents might be amended by courts of appeal. Thus, if the presumed foster parents might want to appeal the resolution on the four kids mentioned above, the Supreme Court might repeal its previous resolution, Yegorova said.
The children claimed by foster parents in lawsuits which were satisfied and if court resolutions on these cases came into legal force, have already gone to their new families, Yegorova said.
