I det russiske underhus arbejdes der i skrivende stund på en række lovændringer, der skal beskytte og styrke den naturlige kernefamilie. ““One should not forget that we all descend from 70-years of atheism. Everyone understands what a Soviet family is. But a traditional family is a tribute to the previous stage of Russian history which had religious culture as a foundation of society,” udtaler Yelena Mizulina, formand for underhusets komite for familieværdier.
Øget beskyttelse af børn mod internettet står bl.a. på programmet. Og videre ifølge Russia Today:
Other possible changes could include outlining priorities in favor of traditional families and traditional family values. These include the concepts that have been supporting the Russian nation for over a thousand years – the union between a man and a woman, several children in a family, families uniting several generations and the deep connection between these generations.
The lawmaker also noted that the traditional family is strongly connected with traditional religions and that a family with many children is considered a basic value and merit in the most popular religions in the Russian Federation – Orthodox Christianity, Islam and Judaism…
Other major issues are the inflated importance of the state social services and their priority over biological parents and the lack of equal protection for all sides, including children, in cases of divorce.
Yelena Mizulina also promised to address the issue in which cohabitation is often more attractive for young couples than marriage. For example, the money allowance to single mothers is currently five or six times higher than the state subsidies for families with many children and some people choose cohabitation for simple financial reasons.The lawmaker called such a situation “a sort of a crime against the family institution, but not in the legal, but rather in the historical sense.”
