On July 22 Pyatigorsk State University held a joint meeting of NCFD Institutions Rectors Council and Round Table participants on “Formation of Offers on Normative Act, which regulate relations in unity strengthening of the multinational people of the Russian Federation (Russian Nation).”
The representative of the office of Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation President in the North Caucasus Federal District, RF President Council on interethnic relations, authority bodies and social organizations, national and cultural communities of the North Caucasus Federal District subjects, Rectors of NCFD Institutions took place in the meeting. The event was led by A.V. Galaktionov, Plenipotentiary of the Russian President in NCFD, and A.P. Gorbunov, Chairman of the NCFD Institutions Rectors Council, Rector of Pyatigorsk State University.
The main issue to discuss was the formation of offers to the legislative act to be published, which is aimed to regulate the issues of Russian civil nation strengthening. The idea about this Federal Law adoption appeared decades ago, and its actualization took place in connection with a new stage of ethnic, interethnic policy realization of the Russian Federation. In October 2016 this idea was supported at the meeting of the RF President Council. The Russian President V.V. Putin prepared a request to work out the Federal Law “On basics of a state national policy and unity strengthening of the multinational people of the Russian Federation (Russian nation)”.
The meeting’s participants noted that all-Russian unity should be based on the existing moral and ethical norms, planted in Russian live. “Our citizens should be reminded that Russia is our inheritage and treasure” - said I.E. Diskin, Member of the Russian President Council on interethnic relations, Chairman of the commission of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation for Harmonization of interethnic and interregional relations.
In this connection, today there is a necessity to create mechanisms to help civil unity of the multinational people of Russia as a civil nation, as an international law subject. Apart from this, it is necessary to determine the legitimation of a state national policy and increase the responsibility of its subjects. “Federal Law should reflect the current condition of interethnic relations and ethnopolitical processes in Russia, focus contemporary policy of the state in this field, - said Rector of PSU, A.P. Gorbunov, - It is necessary to eliminated the gaps and defects of legal and normative character, which can be found in the federal and regional legislature of the Russian Federation in state national policy, and to pay the biggest attention to the consolidation of the Russian society.”
After the cooperative discussion of the main subject of the meeting the Council moved to the second agenda. R.M. Olkhovskiy, vice-president of Burevestnik Russian Student Sport Union presented his report, and methodic basics and perspectives of student sports were discussed, as well as plans on student sport events in 2018 and possible participation of NCFD institutions teams there.
