MOSCOW, May 22. /TASS/. There are no plans to legalize polygamy and civil marriages in Russia, Chairwoman of the State Duma Committee on Family, Women and Children Yelena Mizulina said on Friday.
"Legalization of polygamy is not planned, this is irrelevant, such proposals have not been submitted. Nor are we planning to legalize civil marriages and cohabitation. The issue was discussed and was turned down," she said.
Mizulina recalled that the Concept of Russia’s State Family Policy until 2025 had been developed last August. "Now this concept has been endorsed, it was discussed and comprises 52 aspects of improving family law. You will find answers to many questions there," the parliamentarian said.
"We are all witnessing and participating in the public debate on family relations, which is gaining momentum," Mizulina noted.
She added that this "indicated the need for a comprehensive approach to improving family law legislation, not only the Family Code, but also the related fields of law.".
