Russia stops UK single's from adopting

British same-sex couples can not adopt Russian children - MP

Moscow, July 18, Interfax - Russian children will not be adopted by British same-sex "families" because the law, recently passed in Russia, bans this, State Duma committee head on family, women, and children, Yelena Mizulina, said.

"As to our children, we have already protected them, having passed the law recently, which has already come into effect," Mizulina told Interfax when commenting on the fact that same-sex "marriages" have been legalized in the UK.

The Russian Family Code has been recently amended and it now bans same-sex couples and single people from countries where same-sex "marriages" are legal to adopt Russian orphans, Mizulina said.

"So it is impossible for British same-sex "families" or single citizens to adopt our children," she said.

As to the possibility of repeated adoption of children, who have already been adopted in the UK, Mizulina said she hoped this would not happen because the number of Russian children adopted to the UK is quite small. "I hope that this fate will be avoided," she said.

A relevant law was passed timely in Russia, Mizulina said. She refused to give moral evaluation to the legalization of same-sex "marriage" in the UK. "As to the moral evaluation, I will refrain. This is their internal affair, their decision and their problem," she said.
