Cultural figures ask the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin to return to the universities by the Ministry of culture.

About the problems in the training of future artists to the head of state said the rector of the University Grigory Zaslavsky on the meeting on the support and training of talented youth.

«It may be wise to consider the issue of return of education in the arts to the Ministry of culture of Russia. In the end, the Ministry of culture then ask for the theatre and ballet, and naked on stage, too,» said Zaslavsky, stressing that it is «a strategic issue».

«It seems to me that a mistake was made when in 2012 the universities of art moved into the state program of education,» said Zaslavsky. He noted that other countries teach students in the creative institutions of the Soviet system.

«But we, on the contrary, try to ignore the uniqueness of our education system and to question the enrollment, the ratio of teachers and students. And universities of art. That is why we have ballet, musicians, actors, and Directors are good», — said the rector of GITIS.

Zaslavsky said that the need to preserve the unique Russian education in the sphere of art, which can be lost if creative universities will have to prove its distinction from other educational institutions. «That we have a different ratio of teachers and students that the singer is impossible to educate without the accompanist, and the accompanist will play nothing without a good tool, and the tool is very expensive,» — said the rector.

It was supported by rector of the Academy of Russian ballet named after Vaganova Nikolai Tsiskaridze, who complained that he and his colleagues sometimes have to devote more time to completing logs and reports than in rehearsal and the training of future ballet dancers. Tsiskaridze also disagreed with the draft law on the state municipal Contracting in the social sector, under which falls the education in the arts.

«Indeed, we risk losing the profession if this law is passed. Because in the culture of standard is not possible at all,» said Tsiskaridze.
