Russia - also good at media wars
Russia has always been good at using its enormous media apparat against other countries, while at the same time making themselves look as innocent as Hello Kitty.
Now they want to ban adopting Russian kids to the USA. There are around 750,000 kids without parents in Russia. In recent years, 150,000 kids have been adopted by families in the USA, many of them having severe health problems.
In last 10 years, 20 of them have died, most of them because of health problems and some by tragic accidents. The death rate for kids adopted in Russia is 50 times higher. (Under the age of 5, the overall mortality rate is 17 for every 1000 kids, according to WHO).
So instead of trying to make better conditions for their children, they focus their energy on fighting against the USA, where (at least statistically) the children have bigger chances to live.
