Creationism in history (not biology!) classes: News from Russia

The creationism is still new phenomenon for Russian scientific community (and the whole society).
However we have already had one "monkey trial" in 2006 and several other attempts to include creationism into biology classes.
But today information appears that one of Russia's parlament deputee (from the Putin's party "United Russia") offered to add "religious versions of human origin" to the scientific view in the history classes.
As far as I know it is the first such attempt in Russia. Hopefully it is because our creationists realized that Russian biologists are strongly against creationism teaching.
