Valentina Matviyenko to ban gifts to teachers: this is offensive to teachers as
The speaker of Council of Federation Valentina Matvienko considers that the law on the prohibition of gifts for teachers is a redundant measure that offends the teachers. This opinion was expressed by 24 December.
At the press conference, Matvienko asked what she thought about the bill, which would prohibit teachers from accepting gifts. In response, she said: “I believe that this excess measure is unnecessary and insulting to teachers”.
Speaker of the Federation Council quoted the former Prime Minister of Russia Viktor Chernomyrdin: “Wanted as better, and it turned out as always”.
“Don’t overreact, don’t be stupid, this humiliating attitude towards people. I’m against,” she said.
10 December in the state Duma introduced a bill which States that teachers and doctors will be able to accept a gift only flowers and stationery. Now they are forbidden to accept gifts worth three thousand rubles.
