Experts are actively discussing the draft law prohibiting the children of leaders and other civil servants to study abroad. The state Duma has proposed to adopt the law experts of the Association of entrepreneurs for development of business of patriotism. The text of the bill and the explanatory note thereto sent to the speaker of the state Duma Sergei Naryshkin and the leaders of Duma factions. Political analysts believe that this document can be used by parties for speculations during the election campaign.
In a letter to Sergei Naryshkin, which is signed by the President of the Association of entrepreneurs for development of business of patriotism “Avanti” Rahman Anakulam States that the education of the children of the Russian civil servants in Russia will allow them to learn more about the pros and cons of the domestic system of education and more effectively engaged in its improvement. In addition, in the era of geopolitical competition, it is important to raise patriots and not allow the Western system of education to instill anti-Russian values to our students. There is concern that study abroad and the children of high officials at risk of being recruited by foreign intelligence services.
In fact, the bill provides that to send the children of civil servants for overseas training is still possible, but not more than six months.
The authors believe that the law should enter into force six months after its adoption, the parents-the officials managed to transfer their children to study in Russia. If this period is disrupted, the Ministers lose their portfolios, and the deputies mandates.
The current leaders of the Duma factions, familiar with the document, unless you give reviews and figure out how many of their comrades in the party teach children abroad, and how this bold initiative can be used in the election campaign for seats in the state Duma. A “MK” asked to assess the bill’s leading experts, whose opinions were divided.
Andrei NIKITIN, Director General of the Agency for strategic initiatives:
Even Peter the great boyars sent their children to study abroad. And his lack of patriotism to blame hard. I believe that we should have the best education in the world, but still always be areas of knowledge that effective study abroad. Not all children MPs and Ministers are going to learn from state officials. Someone wants to become a doctor. And what is wrong if a young doctor wants to improve their skills? And if we send our citizens on the operations abroad, it means there’s probably doctors know something we lack. Hence, you need to learn this there. Do not be ashamed to learn, if there is a lot to learn. Of course, now the country is experiencing a Patriotic boom of the electorate during the election period may like the rhetoric that generally from the country to go anywhere no need. And policies are likely to speculate on that. But we must understand that it is impossible to bring a sense of home to the point of absurdity. To study abroad what then might be helpful to people in Russia is also patriotism.
– The authors insist on the risks that children are our officials abroad will begin to be recruited by the enemies of Russia…
– Law provides entrepreneurs Association-patriots, as I understand it. So let them think about how to grow a young generation of patriots. To bring up patriotism — a useful initiative. Then people will go abroad to learn something useful and bring that knowledge here, not to serve another country. And nobody will turn. Therefore, the subject the authors of the bill raise a burning, but it seems to me that indiscriminately deny nothing is impossible.
Anton ORLOV, a member of the Board of Directors of the Institute for the analysis of political infrastructure:
Is a very good initiative. Look at our officials and deputies, so straight the patriots to the tips of the nails. Only some of them sell goods which they themselves do not believe. Outside broadcast Patriotic sentiments, swear furious love of country, and if you dig a little deeper – children are studying abroad, to relax yourself in travel to Europe and the States (who have not yet banned) and fun to eat sanctions products. This measure itself is very logical and should be a continuation of the ban on having properties and Bank accounts abroad.
Try to limit the departure abroad of bureaucratic children is undertaken not for the first time. In 2013 the Deputy Smolin from the Communist party first attempted to push a similar bill in Parliament, however, in the profile Committee of the state Duma rejected it on formal grounds. Shortly thereafter, the Deputy Zheleznyak from United Russia” loudly declared the fact that a similar bill has already been developed and is about to be submitted to the State Duma. A bill may have been, but the ironstone companions never made. Probably forgetfulness.
Today, the theme sounds again. I am sure that the vast majority of the population supports this initiative, hence such a response. I wonder if any party will take her on a banner and promise to push in the new convocation of the state Duma already in autumn, and as a matter of priority. But it will be very sad, if you promise and forget.
The outgoing members of the state Duma very quickly adopted a package of laws on the nationalization of the elites after this was demanded by President Putin. Literally unanimously accepted, although the result was that many deputies and senators had to choose: either the mandate or foreign assets.
And now, I believe legislators would be willing to discuss the topic, but direct guidance of Putin does nothing.Related posts:
