MOSCOW, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Council of Russia’s State Duma may consider the bills envisioning simpler regulations for granting Russian citizenship to Ukrainians at a session March 11, Vladimir Pligin, the chairman of the Duma committee for constitutional legislation and state construction told reporters Friday.
At this moment, the case in hand is two different bill, one initiated by the Liberal Democratic MP, Ilya Drozdov, and the other submitted by the Communist MP, Ivan Nikitchuk. Both bills have been submitted to the committee.
“If we get other initiatives by that time, they will be considered in the same package,” Pligin said.
Under the Duma procedural regulations, the mailout of bills has a period of 30 days but it may be cut short in case a matter under consideration falls into the scope of federal competences, the mailout period may be slashed.
“Regardless of legal assessments, the emotional underpinning of these proposals can easily be understood,” Pligin said.
