MEDIA UPDATE: NCFA Issues Statement Regarding Rumored Suspension of Russian Adoptions to the U.S.

Alexandria, VA – During a press conference today, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Andrei Nesterenko announced a suspension of adoptions to the United States until a bilateral agreement on intercountry adoption is formalized with the United States. The National Council For Adoption (NCFA) has spoken with Russian officials in the Ministry of Education (the Russian department with oversight of intercountry adoption) and with those in the Russian Embassy and neither department has been able to confirm the announcement or issue a public statement regarding when and if it will go into effect.

NCFA will announce further details as they become available.
