The president underlined the fact that in late December a decree was signed and that the government was ordered to simplify the procedures for adoptions and granting the guardianship of orphans and children left without parental care.
The government is also expected to provide a number of tax benefits to those who adopt, to increase the size of the lump sum received by a family for the care of a child and to raise social pensions for disabled children and those disabled from birth.

President Vladimir Putin agrees that the proposed system of juvenile justice is fraught with risks and should be reconsidered.
For the first time he touched upon the issue at a national meeting of family and parenthood activists in Moscow on Saturday after a petition against the proposed system attracted almost 150,000 signatures.
The critics feared juvenile justice would empower the state to arbitrarily remove children from their parents.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has promised to take into account public opinion in passing legislation on juvenile justice and believes that ill-conceived introduction of such laws could provoke corruption.
"Poorly thought-out implementation of such mechanisms, which actually means the violation of a family's sovereignty, might provoke mistrust and discord between parents and children and even direct corruption and attempts to parasitize on family problems," Putin said at a Congress of Parents of Russia on Saturday.
"There is no place for secrecy or enforcement" in discussing the matter of juvenile justice, Putin said.
"I'll tell you more: this concerns all governmental and legislative decisions," he added. A number of provisions of bills on social patronage and control over guarantees of the rights of orphaned children are unreasonably open to interpretation and "contain obvious social risks," Putin said.
In addition, these bills do not fully take into account Russian family traditions, Putin said.
"The Russian people and virtually all other peoples living in Russia have had centuries-long traditions of a large family consolidating several generations of relatives, and priority has always been given to care about the elderly and children. We should revive these very traditions and avoid blindly copying somebody else's experience," he said.
"There have been quite a lot of examples of depriving normal loving and working parents of parental rights," Putin said.
"Some instances of interference in a family's affairs have been simply absurd and humiliating in nature," he said. The law should list exhaustive criteria for considering a family extremely problematic, "and this is when authorities can and should intervene and provide targeted assistance," he said.
Each particular case has its specifics that need to be taken into consideration, and each particular case should be treated "not only resolutely but also extremely delicately, avoiding cold formalism and putting as much effort as possible to preserving and supporting a full-fledged family."
The removal of a child from a family is an extreme measure, Putin said, adding that it is more important to eliminate "causes of social illnesses." Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said Putin's attitude toward the idea of juvenile justice is skeptical.
Putin has "more balanced and reasonable position" free from radicalism regarding the introduction of a juvenile justice system and the adoption of a new school literature program.
The Congress of Parents of Russia, particularly its initiator, political analyst Sergei Kurginian, has more radical views and judgments on these matters, he said.
Two bills introducing elements of juvenile justice in Russia have been proposed to the State Duma for consideration.
Both documents were proposed by Dmitry Medvedev, the first time as president and then as prime minister.
