«I am not a supporter all the time to introduce some kind of repression, I’m against it. Of course, we live in a very difficult time, any field, it is sensitive, children – too sensitive topic. And to say that let there will toughen responsibility of the parents… This liability already exists,» — said Kucherena on air of TV channel «Russia 24».
