MOSCOW, January 9 (Itar-Tass) – Russia terminated the Adoption Agreement with the United States on January 1, 2013, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
"On January 1, the Russian Foreign Ministry officially notified the U.S. embassy in Moscow that Russia is terminating rather than ‘freezing’ the aforesaid Agreement in connection with the coming in force on the same date of a federal law on measures of influencing persons linked to violation of basic human rights and liberties and the rights and individual freedoms of citizens of Russia,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"Any other interpretations or attempts to distort the essence of our position are unacceptable. We have terminated the aforesaid Agreement,” the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized.
