Russia will sign an adoption agreement with Spain. Russia's Minister for Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov said that the work on the adequate document was going through the final stage.
After the agreement is approved, the foreign Ministry of the Russian Federation plans to develop similar agreements with the United Kingdom and Israel. In addition, negotiations are underway with Ireland, Cyprus, Slovenia, New Zealand and Malta. According to the minister, citizens of these countries adopt Russian children most actively. For the time being, there are two agreements with Italy and France.
One of the important conditions of such agreements is the preservation of Russian citizenship for Russian children after their adoption. In addition, the document stipulates foreign adoptive parents should register their child at the Russian consulate office, and provide regular reports on his life conditions and education.
