Vladimir Putin is pissed at America, and he knows exactly where his first strike against us should be aimed- at Russian children.
The Russian President who inexplicably returned to power this year is upset with a U.S. law signed by President Barack Obama that keeps Russian citizens accused of violating human rights from traveling to the United States.
So instead of responding in kind, the leader is taking his ball and going home. Only in this case his "ball" is hundreds of Russian orphans.
Russia's Federation Council, one of their houses of Parliament, approved a measure unanimously to ban the adoption of Russian children by American parents.
The law would void this year's bilateral agreement on international adoptions, which would have helped facilitate the flow of Russian orphans into the wealthier U.S.
Over 1,000 Russian children were given American homes in 2011. At least 46 current adoption cases are being blocked by this new law.
