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.
"We cannot abolish free education, free health care today and we will not do this. Firstly, this is an article of the Constitution. Secondly, provision of high-quality commercial services can be extended but only together with the growth of welfare of citizens," the Russian leader said.
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.
