MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. Support is growing for law banning US citizens from adopting children in Russia, a new poll suggests.
Legislation known as the Dima Yakovlev law has been in force since January 2013, named after a child from northwest Russia's Pskov region. The boy died of heat stroke four months after being adopted by a US couple when his adoptive father left him in a parked car for nine hours.
Soundings taken among 1,600 people across 46 Russian regions recorded 76% supporting the law compared with 54% in January 2013. Less than 20% voiced opposing views, close to the 21% in the 2013 survey, the Russian Public Opinion Research Centre (VTsIOM) website reported on Monday.
Citizens from 20 countries are allowed to adopt Russian children. Talks are now underway with Israel, Ireland and Sweden.
