With what our adoption agencies in this nation are required to allow, this is definitely the right move by Putin. The endorsement by the Orthodox Church is due to matters of morality and christian values, though I’d never expect the press to say so.
Despite the spin the Guardian puts on this — Russia is right about this. Oh, and Pussy Riot was rightly convicted of hooliganism.
Right, it's perfectly proper for Communists to blow up Christian Churches.
And this is more evidence that it's Communists that oppose Putin and his policies that strengthen Russia against the Marxist left.
I wonder if it will ever come to a point that Russia will outlaw Communists as Germany has outlawed Nazis.

Considering what America now defines as a “Family”, the only real choice that Russia has is to protect the children from this cesspool.
what a despicable statement by a major Church, to tell little children they are banned from heaven because they were adopted by citizens of another country
ban foreign adoption then, and let this miserable Church of “God” roll up its gilded sleeves and go to work saving souls in those human warehouses called orphanages - where religion is NOT part of the children’s life in any way. And especially save souls in the “imbecile asylums” where Russia’s damaged children are cast at age 5
The Russians have been told, facts show, know that 50% or more of those orphans, PERMANENT SOCIAL OUTCASTS, will end up on the streets, selling themselves for drugs and up to 30% of them will die or commit suicide
Maybe the self-righteous Orthodox Church should start saving souls on the Streets of Leningradsky, just one city of thousands

Well good. SO DO I.
