GORKI, December 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev opened this year’s last meeting of the Russian government with words of gratitude to the State Duma lower house of parliament and the Federation Council upper house for co-operative fruitful work.
“In the autumn session alone, 193 laws were passed, 117 of them were submitted by the government,” he said, adding that about 15 federal laws “were adopted with taking into consideration of our amendments.”
The prime minister also thanked all those present at the meeting for joint work.
“This work requires efforts, attention, it is often emotional, but I would like to express special thanks to the Federal Assembly — the State Duma and Federation Council for efficient cooperation,” Medvedev stressed. “This is the way the work should be done for the most effective solutions,” he concluded.
