The former Prosecutor of Crimea, the Chairman of the Duma Committee for security and combating corruption Natalia Poklonskaya made for the preservation of Russia’s coat of arms in its current form. She stated “the Tape.ru” on Tuesday, November 29.
“So many who want to change something, to paint, to paint on, what is it? I am personally satisfied with the current coat of arms”, — said the MP, commenting on the proposal of the leader of the biker club “Night wolves” Alexander Zaldostanov, known as the Surgeon, to change the Russian coat of arms.
Poklonski stressed that boasts the emblem under which “in 2014, the Crimea returned home to Russia.”
Earlier Tuesday, the chief military heraldry FSO Nikolay Ukolov expressed the opinion that the idea Zaldostanov makes no sense because the coat of arms is self-sufficient and historically verified. Member of Council of Federation Elena Afanasieva, in turn, considers that the proposal of the biker deserves attention.
The surgeon appealed to President Vladimir Putin with a request to add to the coat of arms of the Russian Soviet symbols — the star of Victory and ears, to “fix the continuity” between Russia, the USSR and the Russian Empire.
The Kremlin has not yet received a letter Zaldostanov, the press Secretary of the head of state, Dmitry Peskov.
