NOVOKUIBYSHEVSK, March 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Activity of the presidential council on development of institutes of civil society and human rights will depend in future from the new president, the council’s head Mikhail Fedotov said on Thursday.
“It will depend on two people – on President Putin, who will decide whether he needs the council, and who should chair it,” he told reporters answering the question about his view on the council’s future.
Fedotov said that from the time the council’s former head Ella Panfilova resigned, the work of the council had not changed much.
