MP Yelena Mizulina, known for her pro-life stance and conflicts with leaders of the LGBT community, has suggested amending the constitution emphasizing the exclusive role of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The move gained support from other participants in the session who represented the majority caucus of United Russia and the Communist Party caucus.
