MOSCOW, March 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Federation Council Foreign Affairs Committee is planning to hold regular expanded sessions on the situation in Ukraine, the committee’s chairman, Mikhail Margelov, said on Wednesday.

At the end of February, members of the Federation Council, upper house of Russia’s parliament, visited Crimea “to assess the events in the autonomous republic”, Margelov said, adding that the parties had prepared proposals on stepping up inter-regional, trade, economic and humanitarian cooperation and provide support for compatriot organizations and all “reasonable forces”.

“We are planning to discuss the situation in Ukraine within expanded sessions,” Margelov said.

A special commission, which involves the committee’s members, will deal with the problem, the legislator said.

“The commission is expected to have several sessions to listen to leaders of the ministries and agencies on a wide range of issues related to human rights in Ukraine, humanitarian cooperation and the rights of compatriots,” he added.

The committee “will regularly inform the upper house’s Council about the activity of the commission”, Margelov said.
