UPDATE 6-Russian lawmakers back adoption ban in dispute with US

Comments (2)

Why did the Egyptians refuse to allow US funded NGOs to operate in their country. The answer is very obvious. The US funded NGOs main objective was to promote American trade, to gather intelligence and to foster political unrest. The US would have the same goals in Russia. Putin has very good reason to keep US funded NGOs out of his country.

This is just bad media. Putin never said it was a response to Magnitsky Act. Author didn’t even provide a quote for that statement because it was never made. Putin will approve it because Russian Social Services are not allowed to monitor the kids in the US or be present in court when adoption goes south. There were multiple cases when kids adopted from Russia were abused or killed by their adoptive parents and Russian Government couldn’t do anything. What else is he supposed to do?
