    Siberian officials on Wednesday requested that Russia’s parliament consider imposing compulsory community service on parents who put their children up for adoption.

    NOVOKUZNETSK, July 3 (RIA Novosti) – Siberian officials on Wednesday requested that Russia’s parliament consider imposing compulsory community service on parents who put their children up for adoption.

    Parents “are condemning their children to live in orphanages, without paying alimony … due to a reluctance to seek employment,” lawmakers in Kemerovo, western Siberia, said in a petition. “The money earned via the community service should go to [funding] their children’s needs.”

    “Parents should bear legal responsibility for abandoning their own children with no apparent motives,” the petition said.
