100,000 Signatures Gathered for Russian Parliament Dissolution

Over 100,000 signatures were collected by an opposition "Novaya Gazeta" newspaper in support of an early dissolution of the lower house of Russian Parliament.

      Collection of signatures started on December 24, 2012, right after Russian deputies had approved the law, which bans adoption of Russian children by American families. Only for the first twenty-four hours about 31,000 signatures were collected. The collection will be held till February 1, 2013.

      100,000 more signatures against the adoption ban were already gathered during enactment of the bill, which was enough to start the concideration by the Russian Parliament. But this initiative was ignored by the lower house, and the bill successfully passed the Parliament and then was signed into law by the Russian President.
