MOSCOW, July 3 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin refused to approve debates at a later date in the parliament over a bill on a reform in the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) on Wednesday.
“Let’s delay it (the debates over the bill) to autumn, let’s form a conciliatory commission before this,” RAS President-Elect Vladimir Fortov said at a meeting with Putin.
“This would have been possible, if the government had not submitted it (the document) in the State Duma,” Putin opposed to Fortov. “Sometimes it is better to adopt, finalize a decision than go around in circles,” he underlined.
