MOSCOW, January 10 (Itar-Tass) – US citizens can help sick children in need of medical treatment and it is not necessary to adopt them for that. Pavel Astakhov, the Russian commissioner for children’s rights, expressed this view in his microblog in the Twitter on Thursday. He commented on the letter that 14-year old Maxim Kargopoltsev who lives in an orphanage in Chelyabinsk had allegedly addressed to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The boy suffering from a genetic disease asked for the opportunity to leave for the United States as he had been communicating with a family who could adopt him for seven years now.
The check established that there had been no appeal to the president of “an ailing orphan” from the Chelyabinsk children’s home, that this was forged. “It was a dishonest speculation,” Astakhov stressed. ”No one prohibits taking children for medical treatment and rehabilitation to other countries, including the United States,” Astakhov stressed. “People who really want to help an orphan needing treatment have opportunities to do so and adoption is not necessary for that,” the children’s ombudsman holds.
