MOSCOW, May 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia needs a new basic law on culture, and the bill should be discussed publicly, Speaker of Russia’s State Duma Sergei Naryshkin told deputies of the lower house of the parliament on Wednesday.
He stressed that the Russian society faces the task of gradual modernization of education and culture spheres, of developing an “adequate and modern legal base” for them. However, Naryshkin continued “the present bill on culture still causes questions,” and besides “it had not passed an official procedure of public discussion.”
Meanwhile, “a public discussion, involving the entire society, of a law, fundamental for culture, could result in a realistic renovation of the state policy in culture, which would answer the requirements of the time and demand,” he said.
Naryshkin called for representatives of all power divisions to support raising the level of culture, including political culture.
“I believe it a priority for all divisions of power to raise the level of culture in our society, which political culture is a part of,” he continued. “I would like to stress – this is our common task. A very complicated one, but quite timely.”
