MOSCOW, July 1 (Itar-Tass) - Vice-Prime Minister Olga Golodets and Education Minister Dmitry Livanov will hold consultations at the State Duma, lower house of parliament, on a draft law on the reform of the Russian Academy of Sciences, chairman of the Duma Committee for Education Vyacheslav Nikonov (United Russia) said.
The government draft law on the Russian Academy of Sciences reform is being discussed at the United Russia Party Presidium, Nikonov told journalists on Monday.
“No details were discussed. We only focused on how fast we’d approve the draft law,” the lawmaker said.
At the same time, he said the draft law could be debated in the first reading in July.
In addition, Nikonov said the Duma Committee for Science would also gather for a sitting. “The committee’s decision will be essential,” Nikonov said.
