MOSCOW, October 26. /TASS/. Moscow expects to receive a positive response from the United States on its proposal to hold consultations on the adopted children, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, Konstantin Dolgov said in an interview with TASS.
"These days we offered US colleagues to look into the possibility of arranging a contact between the Russian delegation led by Presidential Commissioner for Children’s Rights Anna Kuznetsova and American representatives to discuss the adoption issues," Dolgov said.
"We expect to have a positive response from American colleagues," he said.
The Russian side earlier said the US was not ready to cooperate in this sphere. Earlier this month, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Russia has not so far got access to certain ranchos, which are private orphanages. "The thing is the Americans, who wanted to adopt our children and then no longer wanted to do that, are loading them into that orphanage as they are excessive burden. We have been fighting to get in there for ten years already. We are refused - they say it is a private organization."
