PSKOV, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. A Russian court resolution revoking the adoption of a Russian boy into an American family, after the Russian child's own brother died in the same family, came into force on Thursday.
The verdict of the Russian Pskov regional court, annulling Kirill Kuzmin's adoption, demands the boy's return to Russian custodial bodies for a ruling on who brings him up, court spokesperson Yulia Pron told Itar-Tass. The U.S. side's position that returning the boy to Russia is impossible under U.S. law has made the outcome uncertain.
Russia's court ruling and accompanying instructions, translated into English and detailing the appeal procedure, were forwarded to the United States early in January. "To the present day, we have no information as to whether the resolution which revoked the adoption, has been appealed by the U.S. couple or any other persons who represent their interests," the court spokesperson said. "Neither were we informed whether the couple had received the Russian court order. We are keeping the case under control," she added.
Alan and Laura Shatto hit the headlines when Kirill's elder brother Maxim Kuzmin died on January 21, 2013. Forensic experts found the child died of a self-inflicted injury. A U.S. jury court opened no case against the adoptive parents, citing lack of evidence.
The U.S. couple has two- three weeks now to challenge the resolution by the Russian court. As soon as the documents revoking the child's adoption are brought to Texas, the registration department is to annul the previous entry on the child’s adoption and restore the initial data about the boy, including its real name, surname, date and place of birth, birth certificate and information about his parents.
Pskov's regional department for social welfare of the population lodged proceedings against the U.S. couple in June last year.
