Here is an email from Vera after I contacted her with a question about Elijah's situation...
An archive is a certification of the adoption decree. I am surprised that your file made it through Ministry of Interior without it having an archive certificate (if the adoption decree is less than one year old) or if it is more than one year old, then it has to be a copied typed page from the Archive log book.
There is nothing unusual in this request and it makes me curious to know how your file made it through MOI?
So I am wondering if this is really the requested document or if it is was so hard to hear that things got lost in translation. PLEASE PRAY.
