Russian Opposition to Hold Protest Action against Anti-US Law

Russian opposition activists plan to hold a rally urging to repeal a new law banning adoptions of Russian children by American citizens and dissolve the Russian Parliament.

      An initiative group of activists submitted a request to the city authorities asking for permission to gather the anti-Kremlin march in downtown Moscow on January 13. The march is expected to gather 20,000 people, which will walk from Belorussky train station down to the State Duma.

      The protesters will call on the authorities to cancel the controversial anti-US law and dismiss the two houses of the Russian Parliament - the State Duma and the Federation Council.

      The newly passed law is Russia’s response to the US Magnitsky Act, which was signed into law by US President Barack Obama earlier this month in order to target several Russian officials suspected of human rights abuses. Many Russian law's critics say the adoption ban is an inadequate reaction to the Magnitsky Act.

      The bill, signed into law by President Vladimir Putin on Friday, will come into effect on January 1, 2013.
