MOSCOW, September 23 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin believes that Russia has an active civil society.
“We have the civil society and it is active,” he noted, speaking at the workshop devoted to partnership and justice in the civil society during a United Russia party congress on Friday.
The prime minister recalled that the government had earlier decided to allocate 900 million roubles for the support of non-profit organizations, which operate in the social sphere. “Unfortunately these allocations are not distributed yet, but they will reach the recipient for sure,” the prime minister noted.
The responsible authorities should seek understanding through discussion and dialogues, he said. “This should be done fairly and openly,” Putin noted, giving European countries as an example. The authorities “should not only eat the honey, but also take a bitter medicine sometimes,” he added.
