Russia Bans Adoptions to U.S. Families

russia-adoptionMOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a controversial new law Friday banning the adoption of Russian children by U.S. families.

The action could affect hundreds of American families seeking to adopt.

Americans adopted close to 1,000 Russian children last year, according to U.S. State Department figures.

Though the number has been dropping in recent years, Russia remains the third most popular country for U.S. citizens to adopt, after China and Ethiopia.
