The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved Resolution #367 which officially recognizes the new adoption authority under the Ministry of Family, Youth, and Sports. The new Ukrainian adoption authority will be called the State Department for Adoption and Protection of Children’s Rights. The original posting of this information and the text of the official resolution are available on the website of the US Embassy in Kiev.
Joint Council does not have additional information about the status of adoptions between Ukraine and the United States at this time. We will post more information on this site as it becomes available.
