MOSCOW, March 27 (Itar-Tass) – Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev opposed attempts to juxtapose conservatism to modernisation.
Conservatism does not reject modernisation of Russia as a whole and of party life in particular, Medvedev said in a lecture on Wednesday, March 27, at Civic University created by the ruling United Russia party.
“Modernisation and development remain the key to success in our country and to the success of the [United Russia] party too. If we think that everything is perfect, this will mean a collapse of the model we have developed over the past several years. As soon as this model stops evolving, it will no longer be,” he said.
“Development of the country based on the reasonable Russian conservative tradition is our scenario for the development of the Russian state and society. And it is this scenario that the party should employ,” the prime minister stressed.
The purpose of the Civic University project is to create a multi-layer system of party education and practical training for party members, civil activists, politically minded young people and members of public organisations.
Such lectures will be given every month by prominent public figures, politicians and statesmen from Russia and other countries, as well as members of the academia.
Party schools will be created in regions. Currently they operate in 17 Russian regions.
