MOSCOW, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia's Communist Party (KPRF) suggested holding a special Government Hour session involving cabinet officials over the situation in Ukraine.The motion was suggested on Tuesday by KPRF lawmaker Vladimir Fedotkin as the house was reviewing working procedure. Fedotkin said the Government Hour with scheduled appearance of Federal Antimonopoly Service chief Igor Artemyev should be replaced by a meeting with key cabinet ministers.
"What's happening in Ukraine? Even we, lawmakers, get the information from journalists," Fedotkin said. "Even we don't know the situation, yet we try suggesting measures."
"I'm urging to hold a special Government Hour tomorrow over Ukraine. Time is short," he warned.
However, parliament speaker Sergei Naryshkin recommended him "to draw the motion in accordance with the established procedure."
Earlier on Tuesday, leader of A Just Russia party Sergei Mironov called for a special session of the lower house in camera involving the foreign and interior ministers and the director of the Federal Security Service. "We should think about what we can expect in Ukraine, meaning the Slav world, and what we can expect in Russia, because this calls for the most serious conclusions," Mironov said.
