MOSCOW, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s upper house has approved a commission on monitoring the situation in Ukraine, Federation Council Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Mikhail Margelov said on Friday.
First deputy chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee Vladimir Dzhabarov (Jewish Autonomous Area) has been appointed head of the commission, which involves 17 legislators, Margelov said.
An initiative to this effect was put forth by legislator Vladimir Dolgikh on February 26. Speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko has supported the initiative.
“There are reasons for setting up a special commission on Ukraine with the participation of legislators from regions bordering with Ukraine in order to monitor the situation,” Matviyenko said, adding “We should understand what has happened on borders with Russia.
