Preserving Family Institution Should Become Part of Russia's Ideology - Russian MP

The preservation of the family institution should become part of Russia's ideology and one of the key directions of social policy. This was stated by the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, Peter Tolstoy (United Russia), at the round table on "Russia: what image of the future meets the goals of national development?" at the press center of REGNUM news agency on June 1.

"Any upbringing, any formation of personality in Russia starts with family. I think that the state, society, and the people should protect the family. There should be a certain sacredness of the family, because it is the basis of human existence, it is the basis and upbringing," Tolstoy said.

"Today, at present, in Russia, very badly and very crudely something is being done to protect the family. State policy is only turned to social assistance to those in need - this is certainly important, but it is only one part of the system," he pointed out.

According to him, the current system is aimed at a very small part of society, while the help should be wider.

In addition, the attitude to abortion should be changed in Russia, he believes.

In particular, we are talking about the exclusion of abortions from the compulsory medical insurance with the exception of abortions for medical reasons.
