NAZRAN, March 19 (Itar-Tass) – The Ingushetia parliament on Tuesday rejected as null and void the bill passed by the Chechen parliament to make an Ingush area part of Chechnya. The document was signed by Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov on November 6, 2012. "The regulatory enactment contradicts the Constitution of the Russian Federation, a number of federal laws and federal legislation acts," the Ingush lawmakers said in a resolution on Tuesday.
In the opinion of Ingush lawmakers, the Chechen regulatory enactment undermines "the principles of the Constitutional order of the Russian state."
"The bill has no consequences for Ingush government bodies, local self-rule bodies, organizations or citizens," they said.
The Ingush lawmakers said they would request federal agencies to take measures to cancel the Chechen bill.
