Children's Rights Commissioner
On 9 September 2016, Kuznetsova was appointed the role of the Children's Rights Commissioner for the President of the Russian Federation with President Vladimir Putin, assigning the role.
In December 2016, she created a register of sexual predators and pedophiles in order to prevent them from working in any educational institutions in Russia. It was then proposed to introduce a lifelong administrative control over pedophiles in March 2017.
In January 2017, Kuznetsova took part in the highly publicised seizure of ten foster children from the Moscow Del Family. This began after a statement from a kindergarten teacher who saw bruises on the body of one of the children, later establishing that in fact the children had HIV. After studying the circumstances of the case, the commission of psychologists of the center for social support of the city Zelenograd made a decision to stop any further foster children to stay with that family. This was supported by the head of the Moscow Department of Labour and Social Protection.
After a press conference on 23 December 2016, Vladimir Putin instructed Kuznetsova and the Russian Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation to study the practice of removing children from families in terms of excessively applied measures or unlawfully interfering with the family. On 15 May 2017, Kuznetsova cited data from the prosecutors office and told media that there were 'virtually no registered cases of this kind'. These words caused controversy among 75 parental and families organisations across Russia. An open letter was then sent to President Vladimir Putin, in which they stated that the public does not agree with this registered data.
In May 2017, a member of the Federation Council, Yelena Mizulina presented an alternative report, based on the data collected by non-governmental organisations opposed to Kuznetsova. The founders of the Ural Parents Committee and the Yakaterinburg City Parents' Committee, supported Kuznetsova, explaining that over the eight years of their activity in the Sverdlovsk Region in Russia, they had not encounter a single case of illegal interference of the guardianship authorities in the family. Furthermore, the illegal removal of children.
Later in May 2017, Kuznetsova visited Finland, where she signed the Children's Ombudsman of this Country, Tuomas Kurttila a memorandum on co-operation in the support of children's rights. The trip caused discontent among the activists of the All-Russian Parental Resistance, who held several one-off picket protests. On 24 May 2017, one of the activists at the build of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation unsuccessfully waited for Kuznetsova with a poster on which was written, "Russia does not need an authorised representative of the introduction of Finnish juvenile technologies". By 29 and 30 May, activities of the same group held a series of small protests in different cities in Russia, protesting against Kuznetsova and asking Vladimir Putin not to sign the upcoming childhood strategy which is valid from 2018 until 2027 until it is discussed with the public.
Kuznetsova reformed public structures under the federal Commissioner for the Children's Rights. With her, a public council was established, which was divided into working groups. The structure included many priests of the Russian Orthodox Church, as well as activists of Orthodox public associations. The establishment of the council drew criticism. In May 2017, the chairman of the All-Russian Parental Resistance organisation Maria Mamikonyan and the heads of some of the public organisations left the council.
In November 2018, she stated that women can have their genitals circumcised as long as it is medically harmless for that person.
She is strongly opposed to the domestic violence draft, which was proposed by the Russian parliament in December 2019, declaring that the proposed bill is unconstitutional and is imitating similar foreign laws.
In December 2019, after the publication of the law on domestic violence was drafted, Kuznetsova explained to reporters that she repeatedly, gave a negative opinion of the draft, because its norms do not comply with the Russian Constitution. She stated that the bill duplicates the norms of other laws and urged to consider whether it's needed at all.
In September 2021, after being elected to the State Duma, she resigned from the office of Children's Rights Commissioner.
Member of the State Duma
In June 2021, Kuznetsova was proposed by President Vladimir Putin as one of the leading candidates of the United Russia party list for the 2021 legislative election.
On 19 September 2021, she was elected to the State Duma on the party list of United Russia. After that, she resigned from the office of Children's Rights Commissioner.
On 5 October 2021, Kuznetsova was nominated for the office of Deputy Chair of the State Duma.
