From New Year's Day, the adoption of Russian children by U.S. citizens will no longer be possible - after President Putin signed the measure into law. It's a tit-for-tat response to America's sanctions against Russian officials which it sees as human rights violators. Irina Galushko has more on the diplomatic spat.
