MOSCOW, February 20 (Itar-Tass) – Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit an orphanage in the Pskov Region in early March, the Izvestia daily reported, noting that the president will visit this social institution during his working trip to the Pskov Region on the occasion of the capture of the 776th height during the second Chechen war by the sixth squadron of the Pskov airborne division. Dima Yakovlev and Maxim Kuzmin, who were killed in the foster families in the United States, were adopted from the orphanage.
Maxim Kuzmin, 3, adopted by the US citizens was killed in the foster family on January 21, 2013. The detectives found that the kid died of beating and psychotropic medicines were given to him before. The Russian Investigation Committee opened a criminal case and intends to take all necessary measures to bring the adoptive mother of the child to criminal responsibility.
In the summer of 2008 Dmitry Yakovlev adopted from an orphanage in the Pskov Region died tragically. The US foster father has been keeping the kid in the locked car amid the heat spell for several hours.
The law, which bans US adoptions of Russian children, was named after Dima Yakovlev. These measures were taken as a Russian retaliatory step to the US Magnitsky act.
