Astakhov supported the adoption of children by Caucasian families
- It is strange that the Italian, French, German come to Russia and can take the child, and a resident of the Northern Caucasus and the Far East could not take the child in Moscow or Nizhny Novgorod, said the children's Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov at a press conference in Astrakhan. - I'm not against experiment. There are regions, including the Chechen Republic, where the issue was closed abandonment of babies.In addition, the children's Ombudsman agreed with the bill from compulsory courses foster parents will free grandmothers, grandfathers, brothers, sisters, uncles and aunts adoptable.- It is quite strange to get to train those people who already have children, " said Astakhov. I'm in Europe tried to learn from our colleagues about the mandatory training of adoptive parents. They did a great eye and asked why, if the family already has children.Previously, Astakhov said, "Dima Yakovlev law, which, in particular, envisages a ban on adoptions of Russian children by Americans, will not be cancelled.Let's remind, on December 28, 2012 Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law called the "law of Dima Yakovlev" and became adopted in response to the US Magnitsky act.From 1 January 2013 this law entered into force. The document establishes a ban on adoptions of Russian children by Americans.
