MOSCOW, July 14. /TASS/. Abolishment of free education and health care is impossible, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday at a meeting with leaders of parliamentary factions.

The Head of State called on the authorities to better analyze the experience of the past and take it with care.
The president urged remembering the positive experience of the country and "to understand where and what mistakes the country made"
"Experience is expensive," he said.
