Russia: Open Letter on Orphanage Child Abuse

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Russia, Governance, Human Rights, Youth

Russia Blog posts an open letter from an American mother of three adopted Russian children [1]: “While looking for articles about the orphanage abuse that occurred in late July, 2006 in Krasnoyarsk [2], I came across your story about the “Boys for Sale [3]“. It has had a profound affect on me. Thank you VERY MUCH for doing the research, then reporting your findings. I view the article differently than most of the folks who replied, I view it as a mom who realizes that the abused boys could have been my sons, and still could be.”
