MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Russia does not expect the situation with adopted Russian children in the United States to be remedied in the near future, Russia’s Ambassador to the US Sergei Kislyak said in a live broadcast of the TV Channel Rossiya-24 on Friday.
"If you ask me about whether the situation can be remedied in the future, then, perhaps, this is possible. But we’ll be watching very closely what the security guarantees for our children are," the diplomat said.
"I’m afraid that the situation won’t change tomorrow or the day after tomorrow and we’ll see how things will develop further," he said.
As the Russian diplomat said, "whenever serious problems emerged and it was necessary to gather information on the fate of natives of Russia who remain Russian citizens, the federal government would stay away because it would say this was not its competence."
"And we came to see in actual fact that this situation was regulated differently in various states and we saw a whole number of instances when there was violence against children and, what is the most terrible thing, no one was held fully liable like as if these were the cases with American children," the Russian ambassador to the United States said, adding that "such problems did not emerge with any other country where there are the cases with the adoption of Russian citizens."
