Minister of education and science Olga Vasileva assured that the Agency will prevent all attempts to involve students in the political process.

Earlier, the head of the CEC of Russia, Ella Pamfilova said that the Central election Commission will appeal to the Ministry of education on the involvement of children in election campaign. She said that the materials for similar cases in several regions will be sent to the Ministry of education, and the governors of the relevant subjects of the Russian Federation. The Ministry of education, in turn, promised to bring to regions the recommendation of the CEC, when they go to the Ministry.

«I believe that Ella (Pamfilova) is absolutely right. Officially to us did not arrive, but we already know. I just want to say that we have article 34 of the law «On education», which excludes the participation of our children in political campaigns. It is completely in a timely manner. All the moments, all the possibilities of the feeble efforts to use our children, of course, will be excluded, because this cannot be done,» said Vasiliev in the TV channel «Russia 24».

The Minister stressed that this article of the law «On education» tough reglamentary children’s participation in the political field.

However, she noted that the adult student is interested in political events, but it can be influenced through dialogue. «You just need to have a very thoughtful conversation and just explain,» — said Vasilyev.
