Every once in a while, I'm alerted to something in the media that gives me hope that Russian orphans are going to receive some justice.
A ministry serving orphans in Moscow published a translation of Medvedev's recent comments to this effect.
"Unfortunately, in our country there are still 130,000 children remaining without family care. They have neither parents, not guardians, they are deprived of what's primary – the warmth of the family. And there is still very much left to do to make sure that the very concept of "throw-away" children is removed from our life. There should be guardianship/foster organizations focused on placing children with families and supporting those families. In general there must not be children in our country that are "nobody's".
