The State Duma approved the amendments of the President of Russia to the Constitution: about God, about children as the property of the Russian Federation, about marriage as an union between a man and a woman, as well as an amendment regarding the ban on alienation of territories.
Svetlana Zhurova, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs, noted in a Nation News commentary that the topic of marriage as a union of a man and a woman is very resonant and most Russians, like deputies, will support it.
“In the end, this is a tradition in our country. I think that most Russians will support this amendment, although the West requires us to define six sexes almost in the Constitution. I think the world is heading somewhere wrong. Let everything be traditional in our country. Even now, same-sex marriage is prohibited, and if this is the norm in the Constitution of the Russian Federation, it will be clear that it will be extremely difficult to change this with any other laws, ”Zhurova said.
Zhurova supported amendments to the Constitution on social guarantees, marriage and the powers of the State Duma and the Federation Council
She also noted that the president very correctly proposed fixing social guarantees regarding the size of the minimum wage and pension, and also made proposals on the powers of the parliament when approving the government and the powers of the Federation Council, which is vested with the right to coordinate the candidatures of the heads of law enforcement agencies.
“This suggests that there will be more opportunities to control power in the country. I think that not only the deputies, but also the Russians will support these amendments, ”Zhurova emphasized.
State Duma deputy Yaroslav Nilov said in a commentary to Nation News that amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation in the field of reconfiguring the management system and redistributing powers will give the necessary impetus for the implementation of national projects.
