MOSCOW, November 15. /TASS/. Russia is prepared to cooperate with the new US administration in protecting children’s rights, Children’s Rights Commissioner, Anna Kuznetsova, told reporters on Tuesday.
"At least, there is such willingness. We discussed that with Foreign Ministry experts. We are waiting until the new administration is ready to meet and work in this direction," she said. "Of course, there is a trend towards resuming the dialogue, and it may end with various constructive solutions."
However, she declined to say whether it will be possible to lift a ban on the adoption of Russian children by Americans. In 2012, Russia passed a law on "On Sanctions for Individuals Violating Fundamental Human Rights and Freedoms of Russian Citizens, " which prohibits US citizens to adopt children from Russia (the Dima Yakovlev Law).
On Election Day, November 8, United States citizens cast their ballots and elected their 45th US President, Donald J. Trump. By securing more than the needed 270 electoral votes, Trump, the Republican candidate, clinched his presidential victory.
