YAROSLAVL, September 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says it would be detrimental to Russia to make attempts to arrange society "in one line," limiting diversity. He was speaking at the World Policy Forum in Yaroslavl.
"I think the state should follow social trends, keep up with them, and not pull in its trail, the more so, since the leadership of the state are the very same people with all their ideas, errors and values," the president said. "In other words, the government must adjust itself to life and be adequate to multiply social diversity."
He believes "in our country there are enough of those who do not like variety, because we are a modern country, and we have different people."
"There are people who think that it is desirable to all line up and, as they say, in orderly rows proceed into a brighter future," said the president. "I'm sure it's not just un necessary, but it is very harmful for our country."
"I think the state should follow social trends, keep up with them and not pull in its trail," said the head of state. In his view, the authorities must "adapt themselves to modern life, be adequate to it and protect and increase social diversity."
