MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin signed a law on Friday banning Americans from adopting Russian children, the Kremlin said.

The law, which also imposes other measures in retaliation for US legislation designed to punish Russians accused of human rights abuses, will come into force on January 1 and is likely to add to strains in relations with Washington.
