Russian children whose adoptions have already been approved by courts will go to the United States despite a blanket ban on all American adoptions, a Kremlin spokesman said on Friday.

“Those who have received a court decision will go,” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told AFP. “Those who do not have a decision will not go.”
