MOSCOW, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian presidential advisor Veniamin Yakovlev said he supported an initiative of teaching the Constitution in schools.
“I support this idea in every possible way and I think that this subject should be introduced in schools,” he said in an interview with Itar-Tass ahead of the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution to be marked on December 12.
Yakovlev said he would be glad “to teach the Constitution in schools and to tell about it in a plain and easy-to-understand language.”
The Constitution lessons were necessary, he said, adding that “every pupil will have an idea what Russia as a state is, who he/she as a citizen, how to conduct himself/herself to live humanly, not to violate laws and not to lose freedom.”
“I believe that we should celebrate the Constitution Day, I am confident in this,” Yakovlev said, supposing that this holiday could be even announced a day off in Russia. “But we need to mark it properly.
