Russian President Vladimir Putin said November 7, at the Novo -Ogaryovo, at the meeting on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the Constitution of the Russia, and referring to the level of life and structure of the state, cited the example of Tatarstan.
“The main aim and purpose of all the activities and state organization is to provide a high standard of living, quality of life, regardless of nationality, religion or place of residence. In this regard, it is undisputed that the Russian, for example, by nationality , no matter where he lives, either in national republic or in the traditionally Russian territories – should feel comfortable everywhere, as well as a representative of a national republic. For example , the second titular nation in our country by number – the Tatars, 5 million people live, but only about three, if not 2.5 , only in Tatarstan, and other Tatars live in all parts of the Russian Federation. And they should feel themselves the same as in Tatarstan so elsewhere. This is not such a simple process, and the meaning of it still should be creation of similar conditions for all citizens throughout the country. It’s a complex thing, but this should s be the objective sought for”, – Putin said.
The meeting was attended by professors and researchers from more than two dozen universities and academic institutions.
