The law on the introduction of amendments and necessary changes to a number of legislative acts was published as well, Interfax reports. Both laws were adopted by the State Duma on November 21, and then approved by the Federation Council on November 26. The president signed the laws on November 29.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
