MOSCOW, January 10 (Itar-Tass) - LDPR’s State Duma deputy Sergei Vainshtein has decided to take orphan Maxim Kargapoltsev from the Chelyabinsk boarding school No. 13 under patronage. Kargapoltsev allegedly wrote a letter to Vladimir Putin asking the Russian president not to deprive him of an opportunity to be adopted by American parents, the press service of the Duma liberal democrats reported on Thursday.
Vainshtein said that he and his wife had always wanted to take a Russian orphan under patronage. “It was out joint decision to take on responsibility for Maxim’s future. My wife and I will help him getting an education; there are plenty of good doctors in this country and we will show him to them if he develops health problems. However, our family is ready to send Maxim for treatment abroad if that is necessary,” Vainshtein said.
Maxim himself is happy that the awkward situation has been settled. “I didn’t expect that I would cause such a stir. I never wrote letters to President Putin. I didn’t have such thoughts on my mind,” he emphasized.
Earlier, some media outlets reported that Maxim Kargapoltsev had written a letter to President Putin in which he allegedly asked him for permission to be adopted by an American married couple.
