A Russian-Spanish agreement regulating adoption of children from Russia was signed in Madrid on Wednesday, first deputy head of the Russian State Duma committee for family, women and children Olga Batalina told Interfax.
"The agreement has been signed," Batalina told Interfax.
The Ministry of Education and Science signs the document on behalf of Russia and then it will be submit to the State Duma for ratification, Batalina told Interfax earlier on July 8.
