TYUMEN, April 8 (Itar-Tass) - Problems related to the adoption of Russian children in the United States will be discussed in full at the upcoming consultations in Washington on April 17, Russian children’s ombudsman Pavel Astakhov said.
“Unfortunately, I cannot take part in these talks because there will be a congress of children’s ombudsmen in Ufa on the same day,” Astakhov, who is on working trip in Tyumen, said on Monday, April 8.
However, he said that his representative would be at the talks in Washington.
“There will be a serious delegation consisting of officials from the Education and Science Ministry, the Ministry of Justice and social welfare services,” Astakhov added.
In his opinion, adoptions of Russian children in the U.S. “are not a Russian or an American problem, it is our common problem.”
“We are destined to conduct this dialogue with the U.S. and it is our task to find a civilised and effective legal mechanism for ensuring the rights of Russian children who have become a part of American society.”
Astakhov is convinced that “if the American side has the wish and political will, we can find a reasonable and proper solution for the benefit of children.”
