Russian Officials May Ban All Foreign Adoptions

The Russian Parliament's lawmakers has developed a bill totally banning foreign adoptions of Russian children except by nationals of the countries, which have bilateral agreements on child adoption with Moscow.

      Currently, Russia has signed such treaties with France, Italy and the USA. However, the agreement with the USA is going to end in January 2014. That comes after Russia imposed a ban on adoption of its kids by US families, also known as the Dima Yakovlev law.

      Now the Russian lawmakers suggest introducing amendments to the country’s Family Code that would prohibit adoptions by all foreigners. The bill will be submitted to the lower house in about three weeks.

      One of the bill's authors, United Russia’s MP Evgeny Fyodorov, said that foreign adoptions are outlawed in the majority of European countries. In fact, that is one of the requirements for accession into the European Union.
