A group of State Duma deputies, headed by LDPR leader Leonid Slutsky, submitted a bill to the parliament that prohibits citizens “unfriendly” countries become adoptive parents or guardians of Russian orphans and children left without parental care.
The deputies proposed to make such amendments to two articles Family Code of Russia, which regulate who can adopt children, as well as who can be appointed as a guardian or custodian of a child.
The transfer of orphans to be brought up in families of citizens of “unfriendly” countries, the authors of the bill write in an explanatory note, “obviously does not meet the national interests of our country.”
For many years, the “collective West” has been replacing the concepts of good and evil, destroying traditional family foundations and moral values. “If you want to defeat the people, raise their children.” The transfer of our children to be raised in “unfriendly countries” is a blow to the future of the nation.
The authors of the initiative stressed that “the specified bill is not aimed at a complete ban on foreign adoption.”
In December 2012, the State Duma adopted the “Dima Yakovlev Law”, which, among other things, prohibited US citizens from adopting Russian children. The law is named after Dima Yakovlev, who was adopted by US citizens and died due to the negligence of his parents in 2008. The European Court of Human Rights considers the law discriminatory.
