Texan Authorities Refuse to Repatriate Russian Adoptee
The Russian toddler adopted in the United States whose brother died in Texas under unclear circumstances would not be sent back to Russia, Texan authorities said, CBS News reports.
The boy’s mother, Yulia Kuzmina, 23, asked on Thursday to have her surviving son Kirill back. But a spokesman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services said that was out of the question.
However, Russia’s legislature still requested on Friday the US Senate to help repatriate Kirill, who is still living with the Shattos. The request made no mention of giving him back to his biological mother, who was busted for drunken debauchery earlier the same day.
