MOSCOW, August 12. /TASS/. The laws adopted by the Russian parliament should be checked for compliance with Russian historical and national values, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko told "Parliamentary Newspaper" in an interview published on Friday.
The necessity of such analysis emerged because "attempts do not cease to force legal systems and approaches on our country that hide different values which are sometimes foreign to us," Matviyenko said.
"For this reason, I consider it very important to introduce to our legislative work the expertise of laws to see whether they comply with our historical, national values," she continued. "We are doing this now but only from time to time and upon our own initiative. I think such expertise should be secured in the Federation Council’s Regulations as an obligatory component of our work," she added.
The Federation Council speaker said that any national legal system is stable and effective only if it represents in its principles and basic norms "the legal registration of historical political, economic, social, cultural, spiritual values of a concrete country, nation." "We should always remember about this - both when we adopt laws and implement them," Matviyenko concluded.
