Rostov-on-Don, January 22 – Dmitry Vyatkin, first deputy chairman of the United Russia faction in the State Duma, told reporters that changes will be made to the school curriculum in literature this year.
“The Profile Committee on Education and Culture discussed this issue with the relevant department, primarily with the Ministry of Culture, and our colleagues from the executive branch, primarily Minister of Education Sergey Kravtsov, said that the necessary changes will be made to the school curriculum this year. At least a number of Works by Soviet authors – this is Alexander Fadeev’s “Young Guard”, these are works by Yuri Bondarev, a front-line soldier, the same “Hot Snow” – should return to the school curriculum, Vyatkin told reporters.
According to him, those works that “have not stood the test of time” and do not correspond to reality should be excluded from the school curriculum.
On Saturday, the Working Group delegation arrived in Rostov-on-Don, where they held a meeting, visited a military hospital, met SFedU students, and also visited a temporary accommodation center where refugees live with children. At a meeting at the university, one of the students raised the question of the presence in the school curriculum of the works of Alexander Solzhenitsyn, “who in his works is engaged in substituting facts and justifying Bandera.” According to Vyatkin, the analysis of the “Gulag Archipelago” showed that many facts were invented.
