Russia gives initial OK to American adoption ban
MOSCOW — Russia's parliament on Wednesday gave overwhelming preliminary approval to a measure banning Americans from adopting Russian children, a harsh retaliatory move against U.S. human rights legislation.
Top Russian officials have expressed unease about the proposal, an apparent indication that the Kremlin opposes the move.
