Russia's child rights ombudsman vows to prohibit sex education at schools

15:06 01/12/2014

MOSCOW, December 1 (RAPSI) – Russia's children's rights ombudsman Pavel Astakhov has said there would be no sex education lessons in Russia, no matter what Europe says on this matter, Interfax reports on Monday.

He referred to issues during a conference of children’s ombudsmen and cooperation with European professionals in the field due to Russia’s harsh stand on a number of related issues, including sex education.

Astakhov said in July that sex education lessons stemmed from a misinterpretation of a protocol to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Council of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse. The State Duma ratified these in April.

The ombudsman said that some recommendations on early sex education in these documents could contradict Russian moral norms and traditions.
