Russia’s Putin signs anti-U.S. citizen adoptions bill soc.li/MYJBGOD says US human rights abuses means it shouldn’t lecture others

Apparently the proposed ban on US citizens adopting Russian children is described in the Globe as:
Russian officials portrayed the latest legislation as a tit-for-tat retaliation against a new U.S. law that seeks to punish Russians accused of human-rights violations”
Moscow’s latest legislation – which would also ban U.S. funded civic groups in the country – would put concrete action to rising Russian complaints, voiced most vehemently by Mr. Putin, that the U.S.’s own human-rights failings give it no credibility to lecture others.
Looks like (at least in Russia) the U.S. is starting to “reap what it sows”. Note the following comments in the story as it appeared in the New York Times.

Might be worth making some comments to the article in the Globe.
Here is what Ron Paul says about the new U.S. law described above. Read it one, read it twice and you will see what Putin is outraged. Also this is a good example of “your tax dollars at work” – ConGross = such a waste of money.
