MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. A Russian delegation under children’s ombudsman Pavel Astakhov is prepared to go to the United States in February 2016 for consultations over child adoption issues, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s commissioner for human rights, democracy and rule of law, Konstantin Dolgov, told a news conference on Thursday.
"We are hoping to discuss the entire range of problems. Questions are many. We are waiting for a reply from the US side," he said.
"We do hope for discussing the entire range of problems," Dolgov said. "There are some fundamental issues on the agenda, including the delayed US reports regarding the conditions of Russian children. We have no consular access to children who have been affected by illegal manipulations by adopters, at the hands of the adopters. We have no information regarding Russian children who may have fallen victim to fraudsters.
