MOSCOW, February 23 (Itar-Tass) – Domestic child adoptions will phase out international ones within years, the first deputy chairman of the State Duma’s committee for family, women’s and children’s affairs, Olga Batalina, of the United Russia, told the lower house of parliament on Friday.
The State Duma was considering a message addressed to the US Congress with a demand for prompt and exhaustive measures to ensure the security of adopted Russian children and to prevent violations of their rights.
Asked if the committee had any intention to recommend foreign adoptions, Batalina said that the committee had not discussed the issue on Friday, but she could explain her personal attitude.
“At this point it is too early to speculate a full ban on the adoptions of Russian children in those countries that guarantee the children’s security,” she said. “I am certain that international adoptions will be phased out in an evolutionary way, and not because we may introduce an administrative ban, but as a result of active efforts to promote adoptions insides Russia,” the legislator said.
“I believe that the measures to encourage domestic adoptions will phase out international ones,” Batalina said.
