MOSCOW, September 23 (Itar-Tass) — The state authorities should provide for the fulfillment of all human rights in Russia that cannot be divided in primary and secondary, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Friday. He was participating in a meeting of the workshop devoted to the civil society that works during the United Russia congress.
“We cannot divide the rights into primary and secondary. All the articles in our Constitution are basic conditions for a positive movement of our country forward,” he underlined.
“There is a category of people, which criticizes me frequently for something in concrete or nothing. They belong to the category of human rights activists,” the prime minister said. “They are few, but they usually give attention to those problems, which did not touch and concern people in the daily life,” the Russian premier said. “But without settling these problems the society cannot develop, cannot feel themselves able-bodied and cannot realize their relations with the authorities,” Putin said with confidence.
