MOSCOW, November 8. /TASS/. The Law on the Russian Nation will mark the first step towards creating a state ideology, ‘A Just Russia’ party’s parliamentary faction leader Sergey Mironov told reporters on Tuesday.
"I consider the formal reason (for adopting this law) and the ‘Russian nation' definition to be highly appropriate. This is the first step to creating a state ideology," Mironov said.
According to him, "global terrorism has been waging a war against humanity and especially against Russia." "They (terrorists) have an ideology, it is this ideology that they are ready to die for, to actually give their life for. We must stand up and fight them using not only weapons and our moral courage, but also our state ideology. The Russian nation concept will be a part of the ideology that we have been lacking for quite some time," the MP added.
Besides that, Mironov suggested that "the law should stipulate that Russians are the constituent people." "Drawing up this legislation is a great opportunity to spell out such a provision. There are ethnic groups and there are nations," he concluded.
On October 31, at a session of the Russian Council for Inter-Ethnic relations in the southern Russian city of Astrakhan, which was chaired by President Vladimir Putin, Vyacheslav Mikhailov, an academic at the Russian Academy of National Economy and State Service, put forward a bill entitled "On the Russian Nation" to be adopted, that would embody all new trends on inter-ethnic relations.
