SARATOV, April 6 (Itar-Tass) – Russia’s Prime Minister and President-Elect Vladimir Putin said Wednesday he finds it necessary to reformat the Presidential Council for Culture.
He said it at a meeting with top executives of Russian museums that was held in the city of Saratov on the Volga River.
“With your assistance, we’ll reformat the Presidential Council for Culture,” Putin said. “Its activity will get somewhat different accents.”
He admitted he was not ready to say at the moment what particular changes would take place in its work, but he underlined the importance of making it “a live organism” that should exert real influence on the efforts “to raise culture to the top positions.”
