Taking Care of Orphans Is ‘National Task’ - Medvedev

MOSCOW, April 17 (RIA Novosti) – Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday that taking care of orphans was a “national task” that the country should solve on its own.

“Last year, 44,000 parents were deprived of their parental rights for various reasons. We must try to change this situation,” the prime minister said during a speech to the lower chamber of the Russian parliament, the State Duma.
