MOSCOW, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Speaker of the State Duma, lower house of Russian parliament, Sergei Naryshkin, has called for applying to the Venice Commission to check the legitimacy of power in Ukraine.

“I would propose to apply to the Venice Commission with a request to assess the legitimacy of power in Ukraine and the legitimacy of decisions this power is making,” he told a plenary session on Friday.

“We, as State Duma deputies, realize that Ukrainian parliamentarians elected just 18 months ago bear special responsibility for returning the situation to the legal field,” Naryshkin said. “On the one hand, attempts to fill in the vacuum in power are seen. On the other hand, the legitimacy of the decisions made and the legitimacy of power itself raises strong doubts.”

“I believe that we, Russian legislators, need a qualified and objective legal analysis of the existing legislative procedures and legislative quality of decision making to take further steps,” he said. “We need this to assess consequences of the decisions made for our compatriots residing in Ukraine and for the whole complex of Russian-Ukrainian relations.”

“I decided to set up a task group that will include several deputies, independent experts and members of the Public Chamber, it should be not large one,” Naryshkin said.

“Ukraine and Russia are members of the international organisation, the CIS, which has its parliamentary body. I believe that the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly could hold a regular monitoring of the quality of legislative acts that are being adopted in Ukraine,” he said.
