Russia bans 3 adoption agencies following baby’s death in U.S.

From Russian News & Information Agency

MOSCOW, July 11 (RIA Novosti) – Three international adoption
agencies, including one that failed to inform Russia of the death of a
baby in the U.S. this week, have been banned from operating in Russia,
the country’s adoption authorities said on Friday.

A 21-month-old baby adopted from Russia three months ago died in the
U.S. state of Virginia on Tuesday after being left by his foster father
for several hours in the back of a car, in searing heat.

The Russian Education and Science Ministry’s adoption commission said
in a statement: "The agencies to be banned from working on the
territory of the Russian Federation include a representative office
that violated the requirements of Russian law on swiftly informing us
of the death of an adopted child."
