So far 20 Russian children have died at the hands of Americans - Russia responds

Russian politicians and media are outraged by the death of a three-year-old adopted Russian boy and US silence on the matter. The boy was reportedly brutally beaten in Texas by his adoptive mother, who allegedly also gave him psychotropic medication.

Maksim Kuzmin was adopted at the beginning of November 2012. Just two-and-a-half months later he was found dead, on January 21, 2013.

Russia has reacted extremely critically to the fact that the US waited almost a month before notifying Russian authorities about what happened. Even then, it was Texas’ law enforcement authorities that spoke out, while the other US channels remained mute on the subject.

Might want to ask oBUMa - Where's the outrage? Where are the drone strikes from Russia in response?

20?

This is unacceptable.

I was looking into this issue more.

It's worse than wanting to keep their orphans in institutions. A staggering number of these kids are not orphans. Parental rights are stripped liberally in order to fill these institutions that make so much money for the administrators. I've heard of some of that here, where the incentives to get kids in the foster system are starting to sway that way, but the numbers of kids in these Russian institutions are staggering.

They aren't orphans. They have parents.

I'm still suspect of Russia's motives

There is a motive in that part of the world to cut off adoptions outside concern for the children. There is still some of the red mentality that children can grow up properly in institutions, that they can actually produce the kind of citizen the state wants there as opposed to in a family. People who make money running them can be politically influential because of the statist motives they declare and they make even more money by not spending it on the kids.

The U.S. is a violent country to send a child to a random stranger in, but Russian institutions can be rough, too. I'd like to hear what the statistics for dying of abuse or starvation in a Russian institution are if they even keep them.

Hypocrisy...

The US Embassy in Russia has expressed condolences via its Twitter account.
“We deeply regret the death of the child in Texas. A death of a child is always a tragedy,” the statement said.

I agree... So when are we calling back the drones?

Russians Kill the Most Russians.

This just in:10,000,000 men, women, and children SLAUGHTERED by Russian Oppression over the course of their bloodlust-filled history.

RT bashes America every chance they get.
Sure they out all our corruption - fine - but don't pretend your shit doesn't stink.

Russia is FAR WORSE than America.
RT can suck a nut.

You too - Putin.

So that makes it ok to kill children here?

Because they're Russian and that's what Russians are used to?
Don't confuse the government or its puppets for the innocent people. We need to remember this because our turn is coming.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Regardless of RT's flaws -

I refuse to rule out an organization that have IMPORTANT pieces, specifically those that are of interest to liberty lovers, that other organizations FLAT OUT REFUSE to carry/publicize.

Seems to me that you have a personal bias/problem of attacking the messenger, instead of CONCENTRATING on the MESSAGE. If they were LYING, then it'd be a whole nother story, and that's just not the case.

Their Flaws? They ARE Corruption.

I've said that RT is Russia's version of FOX NEWS, but it's actually worse than that, because RT is funded directly by the RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT.

So when you support RT because they do a piece they know "liberty lovers" will tune in for, you DIRECTLY SUPPORT RUSSIAN CORRUPTION.

So do you still support RT regardless of their flaws?

Analogy:

Would you support a Hitler-Funded News program because they did a favorable Ron Paul piece in America? Because they DID do things that like that win favor from the unassuming American Public.

I conceded that a liberty-favorable piece is good for the info and the attention, but IT IS JUST AS IMPORTANT to keep in mind that RT is just as corrupt, unbalanced, and biased as FOX NEWS.

I have no idea why people

I have no idea why people have downvoted your comment. You are exactly right.

One world, under government, with power and money for the elite
