The US government has created a system that's so convoluted and expensive that it prevents more adoptions than it allows because it bankrupts couples who want to adopt.
Meanwhile it farms out foster kids on a wholesale basis and creates a business out of it.
The Russian Government is simply following the back door recommendation of DC's controlling bureaucracy.
We don't want decent couples with the ability to care for a child as a family to do so. It is counter to the progressive mandate.
The average Russian citizen would rather see a child adopted and cared for than to engage in policies that victimize individuals for political reasons.
