MOSCOW, April 30 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Foreign Ministry has invited all adopted and adoptive compatriots in the United States to register at the Consulate-General in order to make the protection of rights and interests effective.
“In order to ensure the effective protection of rights and legal interests of Russian children adopted by American families the Russian Foreign Ministry and other Russian institutions in the U.S. invite all adopted and adoptive compatriots to register at the Consulate-General,” the ministry said.
