PETROPAVLOVSK KAMCHATSKY, November 16, 22:31 /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow sees no real steps by the United States to resolve problems associated with the adoption of Russian children by Americans, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“The American side recognises the need to set things in order in the adoption process, but we have not seen any real results so far,” Lavrov told the Postskriptum television programme on Saturday, November 16.
“When resounding incidents occurred with our young citizens, we conducted a survey to study the situation with adoptions in the U.S., not only with regard to Russian children but also children from other countries and the U.S. itself. We got a very sad picture. By the number of adoption violations and per capita acts of violence against children, and this can be expressed in figures, this is perhaps an absolute record,” the minister said.
Russia also studied reports released by American human rights organisations which “are ringing the alarm because adoptions in the U.S. can and often are dangerous for the health of adopted children,” Lavrov said.
