Ban on American Adoptions of Russian Children


Members of the Russian Duma, or Russian MPs, backed a bill to ban United States citizens from adopting Russian children last week. The bill also moves to ban all U.S. funded non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) that work within Russian boundaries. President Vladmir Putin is expected to sign the bill into law on December 27th. The bill is believed to be the Russian response to the U.S. Magnitsky Act, named after the anti-corruption lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky who died in a Russian prison in 2009. The act contains visa restrictions and financial sanctions to punish the Russian officials believed responsible for the prison death.

President Putin considers the Magnitsky Act a directly unfriendly act against Russia, and suggests that U.S. policy makers should turn their gaze inward and attempt United Sates prison reform before intervening in other nations. Nearly a third of all children adopted in Russia went to American families, and because of this the U.S. State Department believes the bill will hurt Russian children. The bill was passed with a wide margin in the Duma. It only requires a pass in the Russian Upper House and Mr. Putin’s signature to become a law.
