Russian parliament considers anti-US adoption bill

Published: 12.26.12, 14:34 / Israel News

Several protesters were detained Wednesday morning outside the upper chamber of Russia's parliament as it prepared to vote on a controversial measure banning Americans from adopting Russian children.


The bill was endorsed by the lower house last week and would be sent to President Vladimir Putin to sign if the Federation Council votes for it on Wednesday. It is one part of a larger measure by angry lawmakers retaliating against a recently signed US law that calls for sanctions against Russians deemed to be human rights violators. (AP)
