Russian President Vladimir Putin Signs Law Banning Foreign Gay Couples from Adopting Children
Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law banning adoption by foreign same-sex couples, the AP reports:
The new law prohibits adoption by same-sex foreign couples whose homeland recognizes their union as marriage, as well as by single people or unmarried couples from those countries.
A Kremlin statement said the measure is intended to guarantee children a "harmonious" upbringing and protect them from "complexes, emotional suffering and stress."
On Sunday, Putin signed an oppressive law banning "gay propaganda".
