MOSCOW, March 12 (Itar-Tass) – Moscow expects Washington to present forensic findings explaining the causes of adopted boy Maxim Kuzmin’s death,
Russian Foreign Ministry commissioner for human rights, democracy and the rule of law, Konstantin Dolgov, said on the Russia-24 television news channel.
“Regrettably, we have no necessary materials at this point from the United States. We have formally requested all materials related with the forensic examination of the boy’s body,” the diplomat said. “We have not yet received the full information that is necessary in such cases.”
“There have been requests from the Department of State to the effect it has not yet received such materials, because the local authorities of the state of Texas do not share them,” he said. “As is known, child issues are largely a competence of individual US states. At the federal level we are told that the Texas authorities are unable to present any materials until the investigation is over. We have requested the materials and we are now waiting.”
US Secretary of State John Kerry told Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that he would be supervising the process of the investigation in person. Kerry agreed – and that is of fundamental importance – that there are problems with the security and well-being of Russian children adopted in the United States.
“As a matter of fact, this is the first official recognition at such a high level,” Dolgov said.
“It is very good. This is a step forward. Now we expect specific action to follow these statements,” he said. “Providing the necessary official documentation to the Russian side would be one of such steps.”
