One year prior to 150 - letija Peter Stolypina in Petersburg have started to celebrate anniversary of one of the greatest Russian reformers.

Conference Idea of a lawful state in Russia: history and the present devoted to significant date, has taken place within the precincts of a historical building of the Senate and the Synod where the Minister for Foreign Affairs, and then and the prime minister - the minister of the Russian empire happened repeatedly

According to the Minister of Justice of the Russian Federation Alexander Konovalova, historical experience stolypinskoj epoch for the present it is difficult to overestimate.

- We should live not only heart, but also will, mind - in it an example of a great epoch of Stolypina, - the minister has noted. - It would be desirable, that the modern legal thought searched for parallels and found possibilities to apprehend a certain sample of that has been made 100 years ago, in today.

Post-Soviet privatisation, as it is known, has led to absolutely other results.

To be guided in this activity, apparently, all is quite possible a familiar expression of same Stolypina will not intimidate! and the basic conclusion which was made by participants of conference, the adviser of the president of the Russian Federation has formulated also.

- the Leadership of the right is not only the purpose, but also the major means of achievement of other purposes declared in the Russian Constitution, - he has underlined. - democracy is created by forces of the right, and to make the right capable, our problem.
