The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday denounced the human rights record of the US, citing maltreatment of children, breach of privacy, police brutality, secret jails and freedom of expression issues.
The ministry presented the report to the lower house of the Russian parliament, the State Duma, which will hold hearings on the human rights issue this coming Monday.
In a sneak preview for RIA Novosti, a Duma source privy to the document quoted it as saying that hundreds of thousands of children in the United States are mistreated and that resulted in 1,600 deaths in 2010 alone.
It makes special mention of the maltreatment of children adopted from Russia.
