The AFP report notes

Ahead of a second and key reading set for next week, Putin submitted 24 pages worth of new proposals, said State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin.

“The president’s amendments are the result of his dialogue with representatives of all factions (and) civil society,” he said in comments released by the State Duma.

The amendments enshrine the mention of Russians’ “faith in God” and also stipulate that marriage is a heterosexual union, said Deputy Speaker Pyotr Tolstoy.
