Moscow Bans American Adoption Of Russian Babies

MOSCOW
Russia’s parliament has given preliminary approval to a measure banning the adoption of Russian children by Americans, a harsh retaliatory move against U.S. human rights legislation.

Top Russian officials have expressed unease about the proposal, an apparent indication that the Kremlin opposes the move.

The lower house of parliament, the State Duma, on Wednesday approved the second reading of a bill responding to the U.S. legislation. The proposed adoption ban was not part of the original version of the bill, but was added as an amendment.

To become law, the measure would have to pass a third reading in the Duma, then clear the upper house before going to President Vladimir Putin for his signature.
