KEMEROVO, January 15 (Itar-Tass) – Russian orphans whose adoption by US citizens has been permitted by court decisions can leave for the United States to join their would-be adoptive parents, Russian commissioner for children’s rights Pavel Astakhov, now in Kemerovo on a working visit, told reporters on Tuesday.
Astakhov said there would be no obstacles to children leaving for the United States if there was a court ruling.
He said the list of such children was being drawn up and verified. All these matters must be decided within a year.
Speaking at the panel of the Kemerovo regional administration, Astakhov has said some 105,000 orphans now stay in children’s homes. He believes it is necessary not only to give each child a family but also to spot problem families.
“We must be ready to follow up adoptive families and also to keep in mind a child’s own family and deal with it when it just entered a risk zone and there has yet been no child abuse,” the commissioner said.
According to his information, the number of families deprived of parental rights decreases by 12 percent every year and 47 percent of parents had their rights restored.
