Putin signs bill banning American adoptions of Russian children
MOSCOW Dec 28 (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin signed a law on Friday banning Americans from adopting Russian children, the Kremlin said.
The law, which also imposes other measures in retaliation for U.S. legislation designed to punish Russians accused of human rights abuses, will come into force on Jan. 1 and is likely to add to strains in relations with Washington.
