President Putin is against the adoption of Russian orphans by foreign same-sex couples, Russian media reveal. The government and the Supreme Court have reportedly been requested to come up with amendments to the law by July 1.
Most likely the order will be fulfilled by the Ministry of Education and Science, which deals with issues concerning orphans and adoptions, according to Izvestia daily. But the ministry says it has not yet received instructions on the matter.
Tensions over the issue arose in mid-February, after the French National Assembly approved a sweeping bill to legalize gay marriage and allow same-sex couples to adopt children.
Soon after that childrens rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov vowed he would do everything possible to ensure that Russian orphans are only adopted by traditional, heterosexual families. He quoted a recent incident regarding Egor Shabatalov.
The boy was adopted by an American woman, who lived in a same-sex marriage with another US citizen. However, she concealed her relationship from Russian authorities when she filed the adoption request.
Two years after adopting the boy, the couple split and started a legal dispute over parental rights. Such a relationship is rather questionable from the point of view of morality and the child got drawn into this row, observed Russian Foreign Ministry's Commissioner for Human Rights Konstantin Dolgov. Now the Ministry is set to look into possible psychological damage inflicted on the boy....

>>So an oligarchical former KGB officer is more moral than Mr. Obama, the RINOs and the Democrats?
Yes, he is! Or course, a lizard is more moral than Comrade Obama. And smarter.
He has saved Russian children from a sickening fate.
Maybe GWB was right about Putin after all— looking in his eyes to see his soul. Ahhh not really— Putie-Pute is a snake in other ways.
Rule Number 1: No poofskis.
> Putie-Pute is a snake in other ways.
From an Americanist perspective, yeah.
But he’s 100% Russian, and 100% pro-Russian.
Unlike our Ayatoilet Hussein 0bamao, who is an alien and 100% anti-American.
Don’t liberals always say we need to look at other nations to know how to run our country?
Preach it, Brother!
I know he’s no saint. But I get more respect for his good side by the day. And he seems to have a really large good side. Too bad about the size of his ‘mot good’ side. But even with it, Putin is more ‘American’ that Obama in any measurable way.
Edit: ‘NOT’ good side
Yeah, in some ways, Vlad grows on ya.
I am liking Putin more and more as time goes by. He would not work well in America, but then the current puke in the White House doesn’t go well with America either.
Good for him!
Putin is 100% man, and ODumbo is 100% girley.
The thing with VP is you KNOW what you are getting/dealing with. It’s like dealing with the mafia. Perhaps literally in Vlad’s case. But you can work with that. There is a method to their madness. Might not like it or support it, but it can be dealt with.
Libs? Random positions at random times with no logic or reason guiding any of it. Just emotion of the moment. The only thing you know for sure with Obama and the libs is they will invariably F up whatever is on the table. For them, for you, for ever.
Sounds like Putin has more brains than B.O.
Both parts of your analysis are spot on. Vlad is Vlad. His motivations are set, defined, and focused. The Regressives (”Libs”) have all the focus and clarity of though of a toddler on a sugar high.
Your statement reminds me of the photo of Obama reactine to a martail arts demonstration (the one in which Obummer whices in a most effiminate manner).
