MOSCOW, June 27 (Itar-Tass) - Russia seeks to receive a complete answer from the U.S. Department of Justice over the 17 cases of cruelty to children, Russian Foreign Ministry Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Supremacy of Law Konstantin Dolgov wrote in the Twitter microblog on Thursday.
“Jointly with Russian children’s rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov we’ve held consultations in Washington to focus on the children issue. We urged the Department of State to provide contribution, particularly getting consular access to the adopted Russian children, including children at Montana Ranch,” Dolgov said.
“We discussed the efforts to monitor living conditions of adopted Russian children in America, including by public organisations. We’ve pledged contribution. We take control over the situation. We urged the United States to stop attempts to wash out the Dima Yakovlev law.” “The Department of State pledged assistance to renovating database on adopted Russian children from 1991,” Dolgov said.
