MOSCOW - Russia's upper house of parliament approved a bill on Wednesday that would prohibit Americans from adopting Russian children and impose other measures in retaliation for a US law designed to punish Russians accused of human rights violations.

The bill, which President Vladimir Putin has hinted he will sign, would also outlaw some US-funded non-governmental organizations and impose visa bans and asset freezes on Americans accused of violating the rights of Russians abroad.
