Mikhail Prokhorov And Alla Pugacheva: We Are Against Same-Sex Family Adoption

 The politician and billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov believes that child adoption into same-sex families should not be allowed. 

      The Civil Platform leader announced his opinion at the press-conference dedicated to the party initiavites to solve problems of chidren and orphans. 

      For Prokhorov, this is a cultural and ethical question: "I am negative on gay pride parades, we are not ready for them yet, for which reason I also do not support child adoption by same-sex families".

      His political ally, a party member and much-loved Russian pop diva, Alla Pugacheva, expressed solidarity with her leader: "I am personally against this. I know Elton John, and I can see how difficult the child will find growing up. Two men are just too hard to bear. I am against, if only I feel pity for the child". The diva nonetheless stated that she was not against gay people in general. Several years ago the singer considered adopting a child from the orphanage, but never followed it through. She claimed she was not physically fit to take care of such child. 

      Prokhorov and Pugacheva statements came in dramatic unanimity with the initiative of Pavel Astakhov, the Commissioner for Children's Rights, to introduce a moratorium on child adoption by French families. The initiative is a reaction to the recent legalisation of same-sex marriages in France and the right to child adoption granted to such families.
