MOSCOW, November 17 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree including Alexander Brod, director of the independent non-commercial organization Bureau for Human Rights, in the Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights, the Kremlin press service reports.
The issue to include Brod in the council was raised during the recent meeting of council members with the president. One of the members expressed regret that Brod was not in the council. Putin said "Let us include".
"I do not comment on the president's decisions. I suppose it is not the last change in the council makeup," council head Mikhail Fedotov told Itar-Tass.
