    I should think he would be more bothered at why there are so many Russian orphans rather than who will end up adopting them. Sort out your own heap of shit country before judging others on how they run theirs. I wonder how many poor children will now grow up without loving and caring parents because this man can’t rub two brain cells together. Shameful and bleak.

    1. Russia has mortality rate higher than the birth rate. Looks to me that they don’t want the youth to leave, which is understandable.

    The only people who lose here are orphaned children. It’s very sad that Putin cannot see this.

  3. Good old Russia. It drops the most repressive manifestions of socialism and adopts the most criminal expressions of capitalism. It adopts liberal democracy as a fig-leaf for the return of Tsarist tyranny. Then it pontificates about who is fit to bring up kids. I suppose you either laugh or cry.

    Here’s what happens after centuries of serfdom.

    How many European and North American orphans do Russians adopt?

  5. You think after the oppressive Tsar oligarchy,then communism under Stalin that Russia has learned it’s lessons of what harm oppression and discrimination does to the people.But NYET ,they still haven’t learned

    A sad reflection on Putin the Russian despot just like Mugabe….Says it all really.

    I’d like to point out a factual error in this article. New Zealand should be included in the list of countries, where same-sex marriage is legal. The New Zealand Marriage Amendment Bill has received royal assent and cannot now be challenged, In France, same sex marriage could still be challenged.
