I'm sure there has been abuse of the system but denying that the law was created because of U.S. efforts to freeze war criminal's money and instead because of their paranoid delusions that thousands of people are adopting Russian children in order to abuse them made them look like the Russian government's mouthpiece and nothing more.
It's just Russian trying to control its people really.
Most children forced into slavery in the US were already us citizens to begin with. Most, but not all of course.
