According to him, the RF IC was against changes to the law dealing with domestic violence.
“Expelled, as I understand the subject of criminal law? Here, we are already reaping violence”, – said Bastrykin.
“We strangled the street crime against children. We fought, killers on the street anymore, but they moved to the family, and in foster families”, – said the head of the Department, proposing to return to this topic.
