3-year-old Adopted Russian boy In America named Maksim: Beaten To Death…

UPDATE: MOSCOW, March 2 (RIA Novosti) – The investigation into the death of a 3-year-old adopted Russian boy in the United States earlier this year was hampered by overriding political concerns, Russia’s child rights ombudsman suggested on Saturday, after US officials ruled his death was an accident. “His bruises disappeared, the medicine vanished, his adoptive parents were acquitted and the authorities have backtracked,” ombudsman Pavel Astakhov tweeted. “The 3-year-old boy became a victim of big politics.”
