Common Reasons that a search may not turn up what you are looking for
Russian Agencies and the Regions they work in, as well as their Russian Accreditation status and Hague Accreditation status
 If you are looking for an agency, here are other places to look.

This is a partial list of agencies accredited by Russia  (sometimes it is out of date, as it is Summer 2008)

Here are places to research adoption agencies

~~~ Check your spelling  for typos ~~
I have some information on Russian cities, but if nothing turns up, try searching by the Region name.
The "Russian Adoption Searcher" will turn up information on many cities

By default the search engine tries to locate pages which have exact matches for all of the words entered in your search query. If that fails, it then tries to locate pages which contain any words in your search query. If that happens a short message is displayed at the top of the search results indicating this has been done.
Try Using the Advanced Search

In addition, there are several ways to modify the default search behavior.
    • Phrase search -The search engine supports three types of phrase search.
      • To match an exact phrase, use quotes around the phrase  Example: "free search engine"
      • To match a near (within a couple of words) phrase, use square brackets [around the words]  Example: [free search engine]
      • To match a far (within several words) phrase, use braces { around the words }  Example: {free search engine}

    • + and - qualifiers

      • If you prepend a word with + that word is required to be on the page.
      • If you prepend a word with - that word is required to not be on the page.
      • Example: +always -never

    • * Wildcard

      • If a query word ends with a * all words on a page which start the same way as that query word will match.  Example: gift*

    • ? Wildcard

      • If a query word contains a ? any character will match that position.   Example: b?g

    • Boolean search

      • You can use the following boolean operators in your search: AND, OR, NOT. These operators MUST be in capital letters. Example: (contact AND us) OR (about AND us)

    • All of these techniques can be combined: +alway* -n?v?r*
