Russia moves to ban US adoptions

Proposal seen as retaliation after US Congress passes law targeting Russian human rights abuses.

    A controversial bill in the Russian parliament banning US citizens from adopting Russian children is upsetting civil rights organisations in the country. 
     
    Some see the proposal as a veiled attempt to get back at the United States after Congress passed a law targeting human rights abuses in Russia.
