silpol on Petition to identify Russian law-makers jeopardizing lives of Russian orphans responsible under "Magnitsky Act" -

"Currently bill to be signed into law mentions only orphans. And Russian existing legislation on adoptions allows foreigners to adopt _only_ orphans with sickness or permanent disability, so basically this law attacks not just orphans but sick or disabled orphans. Yes this is level of Russian politics in Duma now. And after news about this initiative broke out, they threat even with breaking diplomatical relationships. Which is in line with Russian slip-into-Iran-mode politics."
