MOSCOW, June 27 (Itar-Tass) - The U.S. Department of State has promised to impel local social services to stage new inspections of the Ranch for Kids and provide a detailed report about the living conditions of Russian children there, the press service of the Russian children’s rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov, who is currently on a working visit to the United States, reported on Thursday.
“The U.S. Department of State cannot force the owners of a private enterprise, such as the Ranch of Kids, to take this or that decision but it has promised to try to agree new inspections there,” the press service said.
As concerns the unsettled legal status of the Ranch and its having no license, such issues are within the competences of the Montana Supreme Court and the issue is now being considered there, the press service noted. Earlier, the district judge ruled to ban the Ranch for Kids over the lack of license and demanded it should be either closed or it should obtain a license. So, the issue is yet unsolved. Hearings at the Supreme Court will begin in August-September 2013.
