MOSCOW, December 27 (Itar-Tass) —— The faction of the United Russia party in the State Duma, jointly with other factions, is drafting a number of amendments to the legislation on adoption of children, Sergei Neverov, the secretary of the General Council of United Russia, told reporters on Thursday.
He noted that the working group representing various factions that held its first meeting this week proposes a set of legislative measures on support to orphans and adoptive parents. He said it is intended to optimize the procedure of adoption of children by Russian families, give moral and material support to adoptive parents, improve conditions of children’s upkeep in orphanages and boarding houses, and help solve housing problems of families adopting children.
Neverov believes it takes joint effort to cope with orphans’ problems. “The intention of Russian President Vladimir Putin to sign a decree amending the procedure of granting support to orphaned children will follow up the decisions the state takes in this sphere,” he stressed.
“The president, saying that the support of orphans is our national task, actually called on entire society, regardless of people’s political or other views, to pool the efforts to solve the problem,” Neverov said. “The situation can be cardinally improved if everyone contributes to this purpose,” he said.
