Russia's parliament voted unanimously to pass a bill Wednesday that prevents Americans from adopting Russian children. The bill, which will now be sent to President Vladimir Putin for approval, is Russia's response to a bill just passed in the United States that would punish Russians accused of human rights violations.This new anti-adoption law drastically affects 46 Russian children who were in the process of being adopted by American families, as well as the estimated 1,000 Russian children a year who are adopted by new U.S. parents. Russia has roughly 650,000 children who live "without parental supervision." [Source]
