MOSCOW, December 03, 17:10 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin does not rule out some changes in the Russian Constitution, but noted that the human rights and freedoms should remain inviolable.
“It is clear that some changes should be made, but issues of human rights and freedoms should be inviolable,” he said at a meeting with the students of the law faculties of the Moscow higher educational institutions on Tuesday.
The president noted that the law is a document, which regulates concrete public relations and rules, but it may become outdated. The president took the functioning of the state and legal authorities, which should work in the conditions of the modern society, as the issues, which can be changed.
He gave as an example his initiative to merge the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court of Arbitration. Putin noted that this reform will retain the current vertical of arbitration, but at the same time there will be no cases when one court will pass one verdict and another court will pass a contrary verdict in case of some disputed issues.
“This parallelism results in some breakdowns in the whole system and it should be united,” the president said with confidence.
“Fundamental human rights and freedoms should certainly be guaranteed and inviolable, it is better not to change them,” Putin noted. As for other aspects of the Constitution, which may be changed over some changes in the society, in his words, they may be revised if the country needs them. “In this sense the fundamental law — the Constitution — it is a living organism,” the president said in conclusion.
