The debate for having more control over the living conditions of Ukrainian kids adopted abroad surfaced after a Ukrainian boy was shot dead in the United States by his American father. After the death of 13 year old Andrew Butler officials in Ukraine realized - they barely know anything about the fate of nearly half of adopted Ukrainian kids living abroad.

Nearly 10 thousand children from Ukraine have been adopted by American parents in the United Sates.

However, Ukraine officials say only 30 percent of those families report on the living condition of their adopted children.

Local NGOТs assure that Ukraine needs to ratify the 83-member-states Hague Convention on adoption to ensure proper monitoring over such families.

UkraineТs Parliament has delayed the ratification of the convention for several times. Some analysts believe the convention does not meet the interests of UkraineТs orphans but rather favors children trafficking and legitimates international agencies that make money from organizing child adoptions. However, UkraineТs NGOs take issues with that stand.

The state still do not have an accurate mechanism to exert control over the condition of Ukrainian children adopted by foreign families. At the same time national adoption and social care remains a priority for the country.

Some link it up with the Russian Dima Yakovlev Law, which banned US citizens from adopting Russian children. In Ukraine the adoption process should not turn into a political bargaining chip. That was the tragic death of a Ukrainian boy that pushed the state to control international adoption more precisely.
