CHURCHES NOT CONSULTED OVER LAW ON RELIGION.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 3 Issue: 127
Russian parliamentarian Galina Starovoitova has called on the Federation Council and on President Boris Yeltsin to reject the law on religion approved by the Duma last week. She said the wording adopted in the third reading on June 23 bears virtually no relation to the original wording, drafted last year by a group that included representatives of a variety of religious groups. Starovoitova said church representatives were excluded from the drafting of the final version. (Russian agencies, June 27)
