by Joseph Earnest  February 13, 2014


Newscast Media MOSCOW—Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed a government resolution imposing restrictions on the adoption of Russian children by citizens of countries where same-sex marriage is legal.

The document, which introduces amendments to last year's adoption law, was placed on the Russian government's website on February 13.

The document says that persons in official same-sex relations from countries where such relations are legally recognized, as well as unmarried heterosexual individuals from such countries, cannot adopt Russian orphans.

"Adoptions can be carried out by members of either sex with the exception of… people in a union of two people of the same sex that has been registered as married according to the legislation of their country... and also unmarried people in such countries," reads the decree, which has been signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

Russia passed a law last year that bans the promotion of gay "propaganda" to minors. Add Comments>>
