"Russian Senator Proposes Moral Censorship of TV on Behalf of the Children"

"We have enough filth, porn on the Internet, on dubious sites." "And it's on TV channels, people don't know whether it's a private or state channel. If they show it, it means that the state and the authorities are responsible," she stressed.

Speaker of the Council of the Federation Valentina Matvienko suggested uniting women journalists in terms of creating a moral code in the media. "If women journalists united in terms of a moral code of journalism on television and so on," the speaker said on Wednesday at a joint meeting of the Organizing Committee of the Council of the Eurasian Women's Forum.

The lawmaker touched on the role of women in journalism. "I am against all censorship, God forbid, on television. We live in a different time. But moral censorship should exist in any society all the same," the parliamentarian said. She emphasized that Russia has made very important amendments to the Constitution, that our country is a social state, that we have traditional family values and that children are a priority of state policy.

"And then there's the breakup. I will not name the TV channels, you know them yourself. You turn on TV channels, there are girls of low social responsibility who do not know who they gave birth to their children, and there they take DNA tests, and all this is discussed," Matvienko gave an example. She stressed that it is not only her personal point of view, "no matter what audience I come to, teachers, doctors, the parent community say to me, 'Why don't you stop it on TV channels?

According to Matvienko, "we have enough filth, porn on the Internet, on dubious sites." "And it's on TV channels, people don't know whether it's a private or state channel. If they show it, it means that the state and the authorities are responsible," she stressed.
