MOSCOW, December 19 (Itar-Tass) ——The decision on banning adoption of Russian children by US citizens envisaged in the second reading in amendment to Russian Parliament bill - response to Magnitsky Act should be a weighted one and be based on a thorough analysis, ITAR-TASS was told on Wednesday by Chairman of the Synodal Department for Church and Society Relations archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin.
“One should weigh everything before taking any decision at the highest state level”, - he said. "I know, that in the 90-s there existed many organizations that were exporting children from the country by the dozen, if not by the hundred, getting good money from foreign families for it. In the opinion of the ROC representative the commercialization of child adoption practice has a moral aspect to it and is inevitably reflected in the immoral attitude towards the children.
Alongside a great number of successful cases of underage Russian children adoption by US citizens there were also disputable cases, archpriest remarked. Many families in Russia would like to adopt a child, though not possessing such luxurious conditions as the Americans.
“The very idea of exporting children from the country seems arguable to me”, Chaplin said.
