(CNA)-President Vladimir Putin will back a ban on same-sex couples from abroad adopting Russian children, he said on Tuesday.

“As for a law restricting adoptions of children from Russia by same-sex families … if such a law is passed by parliament I will sign it,” Putin told a news conference after the Russia-EU summit in the city of Yekaterinburg.

Legislation allowing only “traditional” foreign families to adopt Russian children would be submitted to parliament this year.

Same-sex couples are not recognized under Russian law and cannot adopt.
