MOSCOW, May 19. /TASS/. The Kremlin is not going to plunge into debates on possible plural marriages in Russia, since such marriages are outlawed, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
"I can say only this: plural marriages are prohibited in Russia," he said. "So, we take no part in such discussions."
Earlier on Tuesday, Peskov said the Kremlin was unfamiliar with reported proposals by the chief of the Chechen leader’s staff, Magomed Daudov, for legalizing polygyny in his republic.
"Honestly, I have not seen the statement, in which he [Daudov] proposed legalizing polygyny," he said. "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)."
Daudov’s interview was published in the media on Monday. "It would be good, if polygyny 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.
