Russian President Vladimir Putin is not against giving grants to public organizations
Russian President Vladimir Putin is not against giving grants to public organizations, although he said people should not assume they are "a form of bribery on the part of the state." During his first meeting with members of the Council for Assisting the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights Institutions, Putin proposed discussing "the possibilities of using such mechanisms as public contests and grants." "I am willing to go ahead with this initiative," he said, referring to the institute of public grants. "The only problem I am worried about is that you should not take it as a form of bribery on the part of the state, some sort of dependency," Putin said, adding that members of the council and the country's leadership should develop a mechanism for cooperation in this area. According Putin, the system of grants in Russia has been working efficiently and effectively. "It is, in principle, a normal form of cooperation between the state and important social institutes," the president said, adding that public organizations need the state support. The Council was formed in November 2004 on the basis of the former Committee on Human Rights under the Russian President. The council's goal is to assist the president in protecting human rights and freedoms
