Twelve Russian children adopted by foreigners have died from abuse since 1991
Twelve Russian children adopted by foreigners have died from abuse since 1991, with 11 of those cases being registered in the United States, the Ministry of Education and Science said. The ministry said two twins recently died in the U.S., but their citizenship was being established. The Russian Prosecutor General's Office is carefully examining representative offices of foreign adoption organizations accredited in Russia. The ministry has also drafted amendments to adoption regulations, including the institution of a mandatory psychological test for all perspective adoptive parents, and excluding what they term independent adoption. According to the consular department of the Russian Embassy in the United States, two-year-old Nina Hilt, adopted in January 2004 was badly beaten on July 1, 2005 and died of the injuries on July 2. On July 6, the child's adoptive mother, Peggy Sue Hilt, was charged with manslaughter. She could face a 40-year prison sentence
