Moscow wants tougher punishment for a US couple sentenced to 16 months for killing their 7-year-old son adopted from Russia. This was stated by Russia’s Foreign Ministry on Saturday.


Earlier, a court in York, PA found the couple guilty of involuntary manslaughter but freed  them on the spot as the Cravers had already spent a year and  a half in prison.


The couple regularly abused their son and  eventually beat him to death.


Killers of Russian child released


 Michael and Nanette Craver, found guilty of manslaughter in the case of their adopted Russian child will not be sent to jail.


The Court of York Pennsylvania sentenced the couple to a term of 16 to 48 months in prison, depending on their behavior. However, as they had been in detention for 19 months and were well behaved they have been released.


They have been given a five-year probationary period.


Seven year old Nathaniel Craver (Vanya Skorobogatov), ​​adopted in Chelyabinsk, died in 2009 from complications of a brain injury.


On his body there were about 80 injuries, 20 of them on the head.


The child was in a state of extreme distress when found.


The defense insisted that the boy was not mentally well and he inflicted his injuries on himself.


Astakhov asks Clinton to restore justice in Russian child murder case


The Children Rights Commissioner for the Russian President, Pavel Astakhov, has asked the US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, to restore justice in the case of the murder of an adopted Russian child.


Astakhov feels that the sentence, imposed on the Craver spouses on charges of unpremeditated murder of a Russian boy, Ivan Skorobogatov, is too lenient. Earlier, the Russian Vice-Consul in New York, Alexander Otchaynov, made a similar statement on the issue.


The court of the city of York, Pennsylvania, has sentenced the Cravers to a prison term varying from 16 months to 48 months, depending on their conduct.


They have already been kept behind bars for 19 months, so they were set free in the courtroom. The 7-year old Ivan Skorobogatov, adopted in the Russian city of Chelyabinsk, died in 2009 of head injuries.


Coroners detected some 80 bruises on his body.


American "justice" selective - Otchaynov


The American Craver couple convicted of murdering their adopted son from Russia, Vanya  Skorobogatov, received an inappropriately lenient sentence according to a statement by the Russian Vice-Consul in New York Alexander Otchaynov.


According to the diplomat American “justice” is applied selectively. He gave as an example and a contrast the case of the Russian pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko who was sentenced in the U.S. to 20 years in prison just for conspiring to commit a crime. Without actually committing one, yet the Cravers murdered a child.  


The Court of York, Pennsylvania sentenced the Cravers to a term of 16 to 48 months in prison, depending on their behavior and decided that as they had already been in custody for 19 months they would be released from the courtroom.


Seven year old Nathaniel Craver (Vanya Skorobogatov), ​​was adopted in Chelyabinsk, and died in 2009 from complications of a brain injury.


When he was found his body was covered with over 80 injuries 20 of them injuries to his head.

Russia’s State Duma members are indignant with a mild punishment for a US couple sentenced to 16 months for killing their 7-year-old son Vanya adopted from Russia. This was stated by the head of Duma’s  Foreign Affairs Committee Konstantin Kosachev.


He believes that the verdict was politically biased because Vanya was Russian and his parents  were American.


Russia’s Foreign Ministry has earlier called for tougher punishment for the couple who regularly abused their son and  eventually beat him to death.

A four-year-old Russian adoptee, named Sasha, has been beaten to death in Canada by the lover of his adoptive mother. The report about this can be found in the Twitter account of the Kremlin’s children’s rights Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov.


   The development comes a few days after an American court released on bail the killer of another Russian adoptee, Ilya Kargyntsev. The boy was killed in 2005 by his American adoptive father. A total of 19 Russian adoptees are known to have died at the hands of their American adoptive parents. (IF)

I understand now why Yuri Sharapova stayed with Masha in the USA and never left her alone when she was a children. 


Parents who adopt children in America don't love them.

I condemn and agree about the above Dart, but NOT ALL Americans eat their children they adopted.

Most of them are just happy they can have a child...from any country, understand?

I just condemn bad parents, but they are not only American. I heard that in France, adopted African children were unhappy.


May be the new parents are happy but the adopted children are not always happy with them.

For example I never met an adopted russian children who became a famous tennis player in the USA or Europe.  


I think for a child, it is important to feel that his parents love him. This feeling of love from his parents gives him a lot of happiness in life. 


We can explain the success of many athletes by the fact that their parents loved them truly and gave them enough happiness to be happy in their life and their career. 


Many athletes such as Sharapova, Tiger Wood, Alex Ovechkin, Dementieva and the Williams sisters.... starts practicing sport with their parents or the presence of their parents. I mean the sport their parents like practicing. They finally become very famous in this sport. The fact that their parents were always near them and supported them is very important. They showed their love to their children through this permanent presence.   


For me, children adoption is a total failure. It often makes parents happy because they need a child but it makes children totally unhappy because they have no choice. I mean they can't choose a family who love them truly. They give them family by chance. 


Since 1991, a total of 19 adopted Russian children have died worldwide as a result of beatings or negligence.

Moscow calls to suspend adoption of Russian children by US citizens

In a statement issued on its web site on Saturday, Russia’s Foreign Ministry suggests suspending adoption of Russian children by US citizens amid increasing number of child cruelty cases there.


The statement reads that adoption should be suspended until the Russia-US international adoption agreement signed on July 13, 2011, comes into force.


Moscow also condemns a ‘too mild’ sentence to Theresa McNulty, who was found guilty of regularly beating her 3-year-old adopted Russian daughter Dasha and was sentenced to 23 months in prison with possibility of release within 8 months.

US Court protects Russian orphan

US Court protects Russian orphan

A US court has sentenced Torry Hansen, who sent her adopted Russian son back home, to pay thousands of dollars  for damage and legal fees.


Russia’s Children Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov finds the sentence fair and right, however, Torry Hansen is not happy and has filed a lawsuit against the principal of the orphanage where Artyom had lived.


Mrs. Hansen is to pay $ 58,000 for moral damage, $ 29,000 to an adoption agency and $ 63,000 in legal fees. She’ll also be paying $1,000 dollars a month to support Artyom until he turns 18.


Artyom is ten now. In April 2010, his new American mother put him alone on a flight to Moscow with a refusal notice. The boy spent a number of months in hospital under stress.


The story caused a lot of fuss both in Russia and the US.


America’s World Association for Children and Parents which helped Hansen to adopt the boy was the first to have filed a lawsuit against the woman. Hansen ignored all hearings. A US court acted in favor of the Russian child which is an important precedent, Georgy Tyurin, a lawyer from the Fathers and Sons human rights organization told the VoR.


"This tough verdict can become a precedent for similar cases not only in the US but also in Western Europe whose legal system is also precedent-based and which is seeing more cases like that. I think that this verdict will certainly affect Americans and now they know which fines to expect for abusing  orphans."


Pavel Astakhov has pledged to monitor the situation with rights of Russian children in foreign families.


US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul supported the court’s decision saying that Artyom’s case was a horrible tragedy.


However, Torry Hansen wants to appeal the decision at a court in California.


According to Pavel Astakhov, she is trying to defend herself instead of admitting her mistake.


Artyom’s story triggered the implementation of Russian -US adoption deals and adoption agreements with other countries.


Artyom is now living with a foster family in the Moscow region.

The success of Maria Sharapova in tennis&life is due only to her parents' love. 


Just imagine what could have happened to Maria Sharapova in the US if she were adopted by US parents who hated her. 


When parents adopt you that doesn't mean that they love you; they often adopt children because they don't want to pay a lot of taxes or they want to reduce their taxes. I mean they adopt children for money but not for love so adoption of children is a total failure when there is not a feeling of love


Russia-US: another adoption scandal


ребенок тень качели ребенок качели



The US is seeing another adoption scandal involving a Russian child. A Florida court dismissed charges against the Traylors couple suspected of abusing their Russian-born son Maxim Babayev. Florida authorities and social services refuse to inform Russian diplomats about the child’s condition and whereabouts. Russia’s Embassy in Washington found out about the case post-factum.




That’s not the first time Russian orphans get abused in US families. This year alone, US courts considered a bunch of such cases. In early July, Martin and Kathleen O’Brien were accused of abusing their children, including those adopted from Russia. In August, Mathew and Amie Sweeney from Virginia were taken to court after their adopted son Daniil Kruchinkin revealed bruises all over his body.


As for Maxim’s case, Russian diplomats still don’t know all of its details, says Russia’s Foreign Ministry human rights ombudsman Konstantin Dolgov:


"Russia’s Embassy in the US requested information about the boy from Florida’s social services but the request was ignored. This breaches a bilateral consular convention."


Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed the bilateral adoption agreement last year. It was approved by Russia’s State Duma and the Federation Council and on July 28 signed by President Vladimir Putin. The document envisages regulations and control over Russian children adopted overseas. However, the incident with Maxim showed that the US isn’t sticking to the agreement, says Russia’s children’s ombudsman Pavel Astakhov:


"The US seems to fail to monitor adopted children’s lives in the US and is not ready to provide relevant information to our diplomats though the treaty says that they should inform diplomats on violence or abuse of Russian children."


Now, Russia’s Foreign Minister is seeking official explanations from the US and wants to find Maxim Babayev to meet with him as soon as possible.


"I'd love to open a tennis school for children in my hometown of Sochi." said Sharapova Maria.

Moscow to support appeals against lenient sentences on US foster parents


US, Russia adoption deal takes effect in November 2012


The US Department of State has once again assured Russia that the United States is willing to strengthen safeguards for adoption of Russian children by American foster families.


The department said in its statement it was working to "promote a safe, ethical and transparent adoption process" for parents, families and children alike.


The much discussed US-Russia adoption pact comes into force on November 1. Every year, thousands of Russian orphans find loving and caring families in America, the statement said.


The agreement is aimed at making the adoption process more transparent by giving Moscow more oversight of adoptees and probing into incidents of child abuse by foster parents.


The Russian foreign ministry has warned the US against double standards in prosecuting people accused of abusing Russian children. It was also stressed that American courts have often proven to be groundlessly lenient towards their citizens who committed such obnoxious crimes.

Ban of US adoptions proposed by State Duma


The Russian State Duma may ban US citizens from adopting Russian children. In adoptive families overseas they are often subjected to violence, traumatized and finally die, Russian MPs say.


"The adoption of Russian children by U.S. citizens as well as the work of U.S. organizations offering adoption services in Russia, are banned. Accordingly, the agreement on cooperation between Russia and the USA in the field of adoption, signed in Washington on July 13th, 2011, will be halted."

Russian Children Sexually Abused, Suffocated by US Adoptive Parents – Russian Diplomat


                      Russian Children Sexually Abused, Suffocated by US Adoptive Parents – Russian Diplomat


Florida justice denied Russian diplomats a meeting with adopted Russian boy, Maxim Babaev, 6, who was abused by his American adoptive parents, despite US-Russian new agreement on adoption. Sergey Chumarev, Senior Legal Councillor of the Russian Embassy in the U.S., who tried to get consular access to Maxim, a bearer of Russian passport, told the Voice of Russia about the new details of this case. In the most shocking part, Mr. Chumarev refers to sheriff's report about sexual abuse of the child that was disregarded by a local judge, as well as to police report saying the adoptive father hit his head against the wall and his U.S. mother tried to suffocate him. The Russian diplomat also cites other examples when state or county authorities in various locations across the United States refused to fulfill US-Russian adoption agreement and prevent Russia to monitor cases of abuse of Russian kids in America. This story emerges on the backdrop of heated debate around U.S. adoption ban that was voted by the Russian Duma past Friday.


Please tell us about your trip to Florida and how you met those adopted Russians who were reportedly abused?


I have just returned from Florida, that was a short to Brevard County. I had an opportunity to talk to five different officers there trying to get access to Russian national minor whose name is Maxim Babayev who was adopted here and given a name Maxim Tailor.


How old is he?


He is six years old. We contacted the office of the State Attorney General, Brevard County sheriff’s office, records department and the clerk of the local court. And what we got was a very cautious and at the same time very strange response to our requests. First, we could not meet with the boy, though he is a Russian national and he is apparently in need of consular and diplomatic protection.


Second, we got some public records but they are heavily reducted. Basically, what we could obtain as the background information for this case is the sheriff’s arrest report, charges against both adoptive parents and the judgment. And out of that we already can indicate very serious issues with respect to the quality of treatment of this case. And if you allow me, I would single out one very important issue.


Sure!


Both parents, we believe that they deserve a much severe punishment. For the adoptive father it was five year probation and for the mother one year probation, though as we can judge from the public records available to us they really were striking and hitting him at the wall and squeezing neck of this boy with hands…


And that was made on public, you’ve mentioned, right?


Most probably it was not a single incident because the doctor who actually examined the boy immediately after arrest, he testified that there were numerous injuries on the body and some bruises on the back side of his head. So, the injuries were really serious and the boy was immediately separated from this family. As we also managed to learn is that right now he stays with the foster family and receives medical and psychological assistance.


But the main reason and the main purpose of our visit was not achieved because prior to this visit the local judge twice rejected our motion as for the consular access to this boy. And basically he disagreed with the statement of the State Department that in such cases where a child is a victim of severe maltreatment, a visit of consular representatives from his country of origin is in the best interests of this child. And the judge decided to follow only Florida rules and local laws and regulations. He also stated that he does not know basically about the consular bilateral convention and the recent agreement on cooperation in international adoption between Russia and the US, and he is not obliged to implement those treaties.


That is a structural issue for us since this case shows that the US authorities cannot assure implementation of international obligations in every part of the US territory. And since it concerns the Russian national and the minor – it means that we have to find new means to tackle this issue. And probably the most appropriate would be a joined visit by the Guardian Ad Litem, social protection services and other representatives in a joined cooperative effort to finally identify the boy, to assist him with the documentation because apparently his Russian passport has been lost or even destroyed by adoptive parents, which is a common practice unfortunately.


And what was the reason for the judge, did he explain why he is not allowing you to visit the boy?


He had a ten minute oral ruling and that was quite large in terms of words but in substance though that was quite poor because his idea was that he is not convinced that the visit of consular officials would serve the best interests of the child, as he sees it. That’s it. On his way to this conclusion he rejected our arguments, he rejected the arguments presented by the State Department and also informed that he is not in a position to apply international treaties in this particular case, he does not need it.


Does the Embassy want to go further and ask for further assistance from the State Department in this dialog with the Florida authorities?


Yes, we will continue dealing with this case, specifically on a very important issue that has been overlooked by the American court. We’ve managed to find out that there were also some charges that were disregarded and in the judgment we can read that the state in consideration on this plea agrees not to file sex-related charges against the defendant.


So, you mean the sexual abuse. And you said that it was mentioned in the sheriff’s report, right?


Exactly! And this sheriff’s report was kind of disregarded by the judge, by the office of the prosecute, the attorneys office and it means that this particular case needs to be further investigated, and if necessary, new charges should be brought against these adoptive parents. Otherwise, we feel that it is yet another case when American courts just did not serve the best interests of the child and actually whitewashed horrendous actions by adoptive parents. We will continue working with the State Department and local authorities. And we hope that in accordance with the Florida law, international obligations and federal law of the US we will finally find the real solution for the best interests of the child.


Alright, let me leave it with that. Thank you very much. We were talking with Sergey Chumarov who is the Russian diplomat and he is working with the Russian Embassy in charge of relations with the adopted Russian children.

RUSSIAN ORPHANS SHOULD BE KEPT IN RUSSIA !!!!


Revenues from luxury tax may be used to improve Russian orphans’ lives - Russian MP


Детский дом сирота



Members of the Russian Parliament are considering options to improve the life of orphans in Russia. Members of the parliamentary majority United Russia have already suggested that money from the future luxury tax be used for that.




The idea was outspoken at the first session of the sub-committee established to provide recommendations to solve the problems of orphans, the head of Duma’s Social Policy Committee, Andrey Isayev, told.


Earlier President Vladimir Putin called for the luxury tax to be made part of legislation in the first half of 2013.


Russia’s Finance Minister Anton Siluanov noted that there would not be a separate tax, but various tax rates would be reviewed.


Isaev stressed that there was common sense in the suggestion his party - United Russia - made, as for wealthy taxpayers it would be sort of immoral to evade the tax.


Andrey Makarov, head of the Lower House’s Budget and Tax Committee, said the luxury tax amendment might be considered and approved during the Spring session.


Last week the State Duma cleared the so called Dima Yakovlev bill which bans US citizens from adopting Russian children. The legislation has yet to be approved by the Upper House and by the President.


The bill sparked strong criticism in Russian society. Some top officials also condemned the bill, saying it was doing harm to innocent Russian orphans.


The bill is named after Dima Yakovlev, a Russian boy who suffocated to death in a locked car where he had been left by his American foster father.

More than 90% of the gift-givers are people with low or moderate incomes.


Special fir-trees were erected in several cities as part of the Magic Fir-tree charity action.


Hanging from the branches were envelopes with children’s letters.


Passersby tore off the letters and hurried to fulfill the kids’ most cherished dreams.


About 15 million rubles worth of New Year gifts were collected.

The success of Maria Sharapova in tennis&life is due only to her parents' love. 


Just imagine what could have happened to Maria Sharapova in the US if she were adopted by US parents who hated her.

Russia-US adoption agreement doomed?


владимир путин вмдеоконференция путин конференция путин портрет



As soon as President Putin enacts the ban on US adoption of Russian orphans, Russia is likely to initiate motions to tear up its child adoption agreement with the United States.




The announcement came from Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.


The ban is named after Dima Yakovlaev, a Russian boy who suffocated in a locked car after being left there by his American adoptive father.

Dima Yakovlev bill doesn’t violate UN children’s rights convention – Dolgov


Russia’s Dima Yakovlev bill, which was today approved by the country’s upper-house, doesn’t breach the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child, a Russian top foreign affair official said Wednesday.


Konstantin Dolgov, Foreign Affairs Ministry’s human rights ombudsman, has criticized the US for saying the law which bans adoptions of Russian children by Americans violated the country’s international commitments.


Washington has unleashed a flurry of accusations claiming the ban broke the UN convention that protects children’s rights.


“We’d like to remind the US it happens to be one of the three countries that refused to adopt the UN convention on children’s rights,” Mr. Dolgov pointed out.


Russia’s Federation Council passes Dima Yakovlev bill


Russia’s upper-house Federation Council has approved the much-disputed Dima Yakovlev bill, barring US citizens from adopting Russian children, with a total of 143 votes.


The law also denies entry to Russia to those Americans who have allegedly abused human rights of Russian nationals, freezes their assets and prohibits any financial activity in the country.


In another amendment, the legislation suspends US-funded non-profits from taking part in Russia’s political life.

Russian MFA hopes for better relations with US despite Magnitsky Act


Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov has told the Voice of Russia he hoped the adoption of the Magnitsky Act didn’t cause an irreparable damage to US-Russian relations.


“We hope we can still turn over this page and the harm that’s already been done to our ties won’t be irreparable and we’ll be able to go on, although it is indeed a heavy burden that will surely weigh these relations down,” Mr. Ryabkov said, adding the law was in effect anti-Russian.


Senator calls to hold on to US-Russia parliamentary ties


Mikhail Margelov from the Russian Federation Council’s Foreign Affairs Committee has called on Russian and American senators to maintain their official contacts despite the Magnitsky row.


Mr. Margelov pointed out that, although the new law contradicted the “rest policy” in US-Russia relations, it would be “strategically wrong” to give up any cross-parliamentary dialogue between the two nations.


This statement came Wednesday as the Russian upper house debated the anti-Magnitsky bill .

Russian senators back Dima Yakovlev bill


Alexei Lyakhov, Lada Korotun


On Wednesday, the Federation Council, upper chamber of the Russian parliament, has backed the Dima Yakovlev bill. The bill was dubbed after a 21-month-old Russian child died of heatstroke in July 2008 when his adoptive US father left him unattended in a car for nine hours.


The bill envisages tough visa and economic sanctions against the citizens of the US and other countries who violate the rights of Russian citizens. It also bans US citizens from adopting Russian orphans. The senators have approved the draft by a solid vote.


The Dima Yakovlev law retaliates for enactment of the Magnitsky Act in the United States, which bans Russian officials deemed guilty of human rights abuses to enter the US. The draft law is also Moscow’s response to careless attitude of the US authorities towards the Russian children adopted by US citizens. Last week the State Duma, low house of parliament, approved the bill by overwhelming majority of votes.


In early December the US Senate voted for abandoning the Jackson Vannik amendment but at the same time it approved the Magnitsky Act, the bill which bans Russian officials whom the US suspects of being involved in the death of Sergey Magnitsky, an attorney of Hermitage Capital, in a detention cell in Moscow, to enter the US. The act sparked harsh criticism in Moscow. Russia had attentively followed every stage of the discussion on abandoning Jackson-Vannik amendment and approving the Magnitsky act. Moscow has always stressed the destructive nature of replacing one amendment with another, Valentina Matvienko, speaker of the Federation Council, says


"That law, the so-called Magnitsky law is aimed against Russian citizens whose guilt has not been proved by the court yet but who were a priori found guilty in the US. This is a very unfriendly gesture to Russia. I am sure that some political forces are interested in the presence of constant political pressure on Russia. If the US Congress adopted a universal law banning entry to the US for citizens of any country who violate human rights that could be understood. But why is Washington doing such an unfriendly gesture amid the current reset of the US-Russia relations on which the global stability depends? Why did they chose Russia for it?"


The response of Russian lawmakers came up with the Dima Yakovlev bill, which bans US citizens to adopt Russian children. This is the reaction to the reluctance of the US authorities to adequately react on the cases of violence against Russian children. In the last 10 years, US adoptive parents were guilty of deaths of 19 Russian children in the US but no one of them was brought to responsibility.


Not many people know that Somalia and the US are the only countries in the world which still have not signed the International convention on children rights, Andrei Klishas, head of the committee on constitutional legislation, says.


"The US has not ratified the Convention on children rights. People often wonder why the US has not done this and what this Convention implies. Let me explain. For example, article 28 the article of the Convention stipulates that the right for education is one of children fundamental rights. I think it would be strange for many people to learn that the US does not recognize children’s right for education as a fundamental right."


Signed last summer and brought into force in November, the Russian-U.S. agreement on child adoption stipulates control over the life of adopted Russian kids in America. But in reality, this mechanism is not working, says Russian senator Konstantin Tsybko. He notes that at present there is no need for Russian orphans to be adopted by Americans. The government has every opportunity to stimulate this process inside Russia, the senator told reporters.


"The aim of the bill is to protect our children, give them a worthy childhood in Russia, enable Russian families to adopt children through simpler adoption formalities and provide financial and organizational support to such families. Russians have responsive hearts. Russia is capable of giving its citizens a worthy childhood."


Opinion polls show that the majority of Russians back the Dima Yakovlev bill and the amendments to it, Alexander Oslon, President of the Public Opinion Foundation, told the Voice of Russia.


"Today, 53% of Russians agree that tighter rules are needed, and 22% would welcome a complete ban on adoptions by foreigners."


Moscow’s response to the unfriendly Magnitsky Act is quite symmetrical, Russian lawmakers say. In addition to banning Americans from adopting Russian children, the Dima Yakovlev bill virtually bans American NGOs engaged in political activity and financed by Washington from operating in Russia. It also bans Americans from heading Russian-based NGOs.

Thanx, Dart the picture of the Sharapovas in Sochi is a great find.  


I agree with the Dima Yakovlaev bill 100% (the NGO business should never have started either--that's all about Yeltsin-era CIA-corporate penetration designed to hurt Russia.)


Adoptions are too often a racket. Hundreds of thousands of American orphans are consigned to childhood in foster care while prospective parents go abroad for "whiter" children.  


There are not enough Great Russian children as it is--yeah, ban all foreign adoptions. True the Russians must accept there is a price and they need to step up. That said, however, Russians are hardly the worst. Indifference to children in parts of post-Cold War Eastern Europe make Russians look like paragons of parental responsibility.

Adopted child abuse: no one's immune


дети ребенок одиночество



Journalist and political analyst Dmitry Babich shares his take on Russia's adoption ban for US citizens and the tyranny of Western morale




I think the Western rhetoric on children is very hypocritical. “Dima Yakovlev law” is a special case, I won’t go into the details of this law, but certainly just limiting the whole story to just the evil Russian Duma barring unhappy Russia kids from being adopted by rich and kind American parent – that’s a gross simplification.


I think it is quite obvious to any person who lived in the US and in Russia, it is enough to live there for a few months to understand that old Soviet stereotype that any kid would be better off in the US than in Russia or on the territory of the former Soviet Union – that stereotype just doesn’t work not only because now there are more wealthy people in Russia so that you can live in a very wealthy family in Russia or you can live in a poor family in the US, but also because people are different.


There are bad and good parents everywhere. And there is no nation that would be completely immune to child abuse and there are no nations which would be completely tyrantless in bringing up children. So, Dima Yakovlev case to my mind is a clear case of deliberate cultural misunderstanding prompted by the Western propaganda, I’m sorry.


As for the attitude to children in the West in general, I think it is very friendly on the surface but it is very destructive in its essence because if you follow all of the modern trends of the Western society when they talk about liberation of women, when they talk about new approach to a family – this maybe very comfortable to grown up individuals. 


The same thing is about same sex marriages. Ok, it is maybe very comfortable for people which peculiar sexual orientation to live with each other. It may be very easy for them now, or it will be made easy for them to adopt a child. But this child will have to be adopted and live with the parents who are not his biological parents. So, will they be kind to him? Will that child be forced or not forced to pay the bills? That’s a big question.


I think that this is the problem with the modern Western society – it wants to break with the lifestyle and with the tradition that had made it so successful during the last 2000-3000 years. I mean the modern Western society is no longer a Christian society because if you look at what is acceptable and what is not acceptable in politically correct counties nowadays – you will see a huge difference with the Christian values.


For example, you rightly noted it that it is now considered to be almost a crime and certainly very immoral to discipline your kid physically. But at the same time it is not the crime and it is not immoral to divorce your husband and leave that kid without one parent. Again, it is no longer considered immoral to give up your kid if you can’t sustain him or her and to pass it to a more affluent homosexual family. It is no longer a crime, it is no longer even badly viewed. It is now going to be adopted.


So, when you said that crime rate is rising because people no longer discipline their children physically, I’m not sure about that, that is debatable. But certainly it creates new cultural features because when the Western society is trying to implant the same values in say Afghanistan or Iraq which for centuries and for millennia lived according to very different principles – that creates this so called clash of civilizations.


The modern clash of civilizations initially is not a product of eastern initiative. It is a product of Western initiative. The West wants to impose a totally new set of values, not Christian values, not Muslim values, but some very debatable new values on societies that never gave their consent to these values. I think that the solution to this problem of too much violence towards the kids or too little violence, sort of moral indifference towards the kids – I think the solution is in Christianity.


We are celebrating the Western Christmas right now and I think it makes sense to talk about it. Basically, the Christian concept that no human being is ideal and even babies because of the original sin have to be disciplined – it has a lot of sense in it. And this is the reason that justified disciplining kids for centuries. So, I think it is quite understandable that too much violence towards children can cause great problems and it is a very bad practice…


It is disgusting, but we are not talking about violence, we are talking about discipline.


What is not debatable to me is that the solutions offered by the modern Western society are not Christian, they are very unchristian, they are almost antichristian and these are solutions that had never worked before. All societies that have been successful in the past few millennia, they all adhered to basically the same principles and this is the reason why there were cases when Christian countries were successful colonizing powers, even when they colonized Muslim nations, since the basic set of principles was the same sometimes it worked.


The new set of principles that the Western society is now offering, it existed only in tribal societies where women chose sexual partners, where there was almost no family or very unstable families – and these societies basically failed. They lost the fight for survival to Christian and Muslim societies. So, I don’t see how the modern Western civilization still technically superior and still with lots of nice remnants of its glorious Christian past, how they can survive in the modern world. We see that demographically, morally and now even economically they are losing the race to Muslim nations and to China, and in some ways even to Russia.
