In the state Duma proposed to remove the age restriction from the Soviet films, as well as books and authors in General, the study of which is beyond the scope of basic educational programs. This was reported on the website of the faction “United Russia”.
“An exception already exists for scientific literature,” appears in the text of the opinion of the Chairman of the Committee on culture Elena Yampolskaya.
In particular, the law “On state support of cinematography of the Russian Federation” can be amended to allow not marking the films created in the Soviet Union until 1991, and the paintings allowed to be shown without a distribution certificate.
“We propose to introduce a clause stating that mandatory labeling does not apply to works of literature and art, their use and demonstration. In addition to all of that falls into the category of “18+” and spelled out in detail in a separate article,” emphasizes Yampolskaya.
Age limits, as planned by the MPs, also will not apply to works of literature and of authors in General, the study of which is beyond the scope of basic educational programs.
The bill was supported by the Russian presidential adviser on culture Vladimir Tolstoy.
In September last year it was reported that a high school student in the Urals are unable to buy collections of poems by Sergei Yesenin, Joseph Brodsky and Vladimir Mayakovsky in three bookstores belonging to the network “Read-city” due to this, the editions marking “18+”.
