MOSCOW, December 21. /TASS/. Russia is not considering the possibility to give US citizens permission to adopt Russian children, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"The president (of Russian Vladimir Putin) has not changed his attitude towards this issue (the adoption of Russian children by US citizens), I haven’t heard of any new approaches," Peskov said.
According to him, "in fact, the ban (on the adoption of Russian children by US citizens) has proven to be quite effective." "There have been no discussions on the matter lately but I don’t rule out that various options could be under consideration at some level," the presidential spokesman noted. "But the official attitude has not changed," he added.
Moscow terminated the adoption agreement with Washington on January 1, 2014 after several adopted Russian children died in the US.
The so-called Dima Yakovlev law took effect in January 2013 banning US citizens from adopting children in Russia. The legislation is named after a child from northwest Russia's Pskov region who died of heat stroke four months after being adopted by a US couple when his adoptive father left him in a parked car for nine hours.
