MOSCOW, May 19. /TASS/. The Kremlin is unfamiliar with reported proposals by the chief of the Chechen leader’s staff, Magomed Daudov, for legalizing polygamy in his republic.
"Honestly, I have not seen the statement, in which he (Daudov) proposed legalizing polygamy," presidential press-secretary Dmitry Peskov told the media on Tuesday.
"If you study it closely yourselves and then show it to me, I will answer your question (about the Kremlin’s attitude to Daudov’s statement)," he said.
Daudov’s interview was published in the media on Monday.
"It would be good, if polygamy were legalized. Only on the condition the Sharia law is observed, though. If a man can afford to support one more wife, then why not? That’s widely spread after all. Then it would be good to regulate this somehow," Gazeta.ru quotes Daudov as saying.
