the Chairman of the Duma Committee on culture Elena Yampolskaya noted the positive impact of culture on the mental health of Russians, according to RT.

She emphasized that culture helps to create a favorable public climate. It is art, she said, forming in the citizens resistance to manipulation and destructive propaganda.

Yampolsky noted that culture allows us to cultivate in the citizens feelings and worldly wisdom, and to soften their customs. The important role art plays in shaping feelings of satisfaction with life.

“Social factors eliminate dissatisfaction. The culture is pumping sense of satisfaction. The first without the second is a labour of Sisyphus, painful and costly fight against a counter-current of the eternal dissatisfaction,” said Yampolsky.

She added that the potential of culture for growth of civil harmony in society cannot be neglected.

Earlier in the state Duma called for the provision of free access websites of museums and libraries.
