Russia Calls for Halt on U.S. Adoptions After Return of Boy
MOSCOW — The Russian government on Friday proposed suspending all adoptions of Russian children by Americans after a 7-year-old boy was put on a plane by himself this week and returned to Moscow with a note from his adoptive mother in Tennessee saying that she could no longer care for him.
The mother said in the note that the boy had severe psychological problems and that she was deceived by the adoption agency into accepting him last September.
The case of the boy, Artyom Savelyev, who was named Justin by his adoptive American mother, attracted widespread attention here, underscoring the acute sensitivity of the issue. Russians feel humiliated that their country, which they consider a world power, cannot take care of its own children and has to give them up to foreigners. Russia was the third leading source of adoptive children in the United States in 2009, with 1,586, following China, with 3,000, and Ethiopia, according to State Department figures.
