KOTELNIKI, Moscow region, January 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev called for withdrawal of accreditation from educational establishments where cases of propaganda of extremism have been registered.
“There is no sense concealing facts when teachers are either unprepared to popularize right values or do some things deliberately, and, I believe, in some cases, it would be quite natural for the Ministry of Education to withdraw accreditation from some or other educational establishment for propaganda of extremist values,” Medvedev said on Monday at the visit to the Main Agency of the Russian Interior Ministry for the Moscow region.
At the same time the president noted that at numerous meetings with the public he quite often heard the opinion expressed that the existing legislation is too tough and that “common manifestations of public conduct” are qualified as extremism. “In any such case practice, I mean law enforcement practice and judicial practice, will be the gauge,” the president said.
The theme of interethnic relations and upbringing of tolerance from the years in school was raised during the president’s conversation with officials of the Main Agency. The head of state stressed that the problem can be resolved in a civilized way if all institutions of authority and society are at work. “We are aware of all existing problems, and certain decisions are due,” Medvedev said.
