SAINT PETERSBURG, RUSSIA
The first surrogacy program in Russia was implemented in 1995 in Saint Petersburg and since then the general public opinion has become surrogacy-friendly. Actually approximately 1 000 babies per year are born.
Some points about surrogacy in Russia you should know:
Compensated surrogacy is totally legal
No adoption nor court decision is required, except single intended parents
The surrogate’s name is never listed on the birth certificate
The surrogate irrevocably loses all rights to the child
No requirement for the child to be genetically related to at least one commissioning parent as in Ukraine.
The law in Russia doesn’t set any age limit for Intended Parents. All ages are welcome
Patients infected by HIV, Hepatitis B & C can legally parent a child in Russia through surrogacy given the following conditions:

Voluntary informed consent of the Surrogate for her participation in a gestational surrogacy program with infected patient
