Russia concerned over Max Shatto Texas death ruling

Saturday 2nd March, 2013

Russia’s foreign ministry has expressed concern after US authorities ruled the death of an adopted three-year-old boy was an accident.

Max Shatto, adopted from a Russian orphanage, died on 21 January, shortly after a Russian ban on US adoptions.

Four Texas doctors reviewing the case found that bruises on his body were self-inflicted, officials said, adding the investigation was continuing.

Thousands of marchers in Moscow called for a halt to all foreign adoptions.

Police put the number of protesters in the centre of the city at 12,000, Russian media reported.

The rally on Saturday, involving pro-Kremlin activists, came two months after tens of thousands of people joined a demonstration against the ban on US adoptions of Russian orphans.
