Russian Lawmakers Pass Bill To Bar U.S. Adoptions

NPR | Dec. 26, 2012 4:24 p.m.

In a tit-for-tat measure, Russia’s parliament has approved a bill to ban adoptions of Russian children by American citizens. President Putin has not said whether he will sign the bill, though he has voiced support for the measure. The move is in retaliation for a U.S. law that sanctions Russians accused of human rights abuses. Robert Siegel talks with NPR’s Corey Flintoff about the ban.
