Americans Banned from Adopting Russian Children

Americans Banned from Adopting Russian Children

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a bill on Friday that bans Americans from adopting Russian children. 

According to UNICEF, there are 740,000 children without parents in Russia and only 18,000 Russians on the waiting list. Now the 50 children who were about to leave for their new American homes will remain in Russia.

The Huffington Post reports that the bill is a response to a law passed by President Obama that punishes Russians deemed to be human rights violators. Some Russians are upset that these children may never be adopted, while other Russian lawmakers contend that Americans mistreat Russian children.
