“The ratification of the Hague Convention would oblige the countries in which Ukrainian children were adopted to provide us with full information about their fate, as the 89 countries that ratified the Convention include the United States, Italy, France, Spain, Israel, Canada, the citizens of which have adopted the most children over the period of [Ukraine’s] independence,” he told Interfax-Ukraine on Wednesday.

According to the children’s ombudsman, the major priorities of the Hague Adoption Convention are support for and the protection of the biological family, as well as comprehensive support for and the development of national adoption.

In addition, he said that inter-country adoption, in accordance with the Convention, takes place only after due consideration of all possibilities for the placement of the child within the state of origin, provided that inter-country adoption is in the child’s best interests.
