MOSCOW, January 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin suggests that school courses in Russian and foreign history in Russian schools should be synchronized. "We should think about synchronizing a school course in Russian history with a course on history of foreign countries which is also taught in our schools,” the president said at a meeting with the authors of a new concept of a textbook on Russian history.
Putin called for using the experience of other Russian institutions of high learning, including the experience of the Moscow State University of International Relations (MGIMO).
“History is a complicated subject which requires good and diverse knowledge from teachers and professors. That is why it is vitally important to organize timely training and requalification of history teachers at a high professional level and actively use video and audio materials and Internet resources for these purposes,” Putin said.
According to Putin, Russian society is interested in discussing history and the way it is taught in schools and institutions of high learning.
"Our attitude to what we are doing today and our short-term and mid-term plans as well as plans for a more distant historical perspective will largely depend on these assessments,” Putin said.
He believes that the absence of certain historical assessments leads to the intensity of emotions around historical issues.
