GENERAL INFORMATION:

The Adoption Center was established in 1996. The Center is a state establishment which promotes placement of orphans and children deprived of parents' care into families of Ukrainian citizens or foreigners by the way of adoption.

With the aim to assure coordination of actions of central and local executive power bodies in deciding questions as to adoption by foreigners of orphan children and children deprived of parents' care, an effective protection of rights and interests of such children, by Edict of President of Ukraine of January 17, 2002 (No.34A2002) there was established the Interdepartmental Commission on adoption by foreigners of children who are citizens of Ukraine. The organizational support of activity of the Interdepartmental Commission is effected by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. The chairman of the Commission is ex officio the Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine; members of the Commission are deputy ministers of interested ministries and officials of other central executive power bodies.

The organizational-legal mechanism of adoption of children in Ukraine is based on principles meeting international requirements, namely:

every child is entitled to upbringing in a family;

priority is assigned to the national adoption;

international adoption is considered an alternative only when adoption of a child at the motherland is impossible;

all questions of the adoption procedure are to be decided with adherence to the current legislation of Ukraine.

A public reception room to which citizens of Ukraine can apply every day has been set up at the Adoption Center. All information on work of the Adoption Center is placed in the site of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, where it is indicated that priority is granted to citizens of Ukraine.
