The Chechen parliament has approved a law allowing children to wear religious symbols, including the hijab in schools.

The change is expected to contribute to an increase in the effectiveness of educational institutions, according to a statement from the parliament.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Friday that Moscow does not have a "single" position on hijabs.

Peskov said there was no "standard" approach on the issue, adding: "These topics are regulated in different countries in various ways."

He added Russia is a multiethnic and secular country.
