MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. Russia’s State Duma may vote a bill on suspension of the agreement with the United States on the disposal of redundant plutonium on October 19, Leonid Slutsky, a State Duma member who has been nominated as chairman of the house’s international committee, told TASS on Tuesday.
"We plan to discuss this issue within the committee on October 13 and to refer it to the house most likely on October 19," he said, adding that the bill is expected to be presented by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.
Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted to the State Duma a bill on suspending the agreement with the United States on the disposal of redundant plutonium.
The bill lists conditions on which the agreement could be resumed, including cancellation of the so-called Magnitsky Act, all anti-Russian sanctions with compensation of the damage, as well as reduction of US military infrastructure in NATO countries.
