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.
