MOSCOW, March 05. /ITAR-TASS/. State Duma lower house Speaker Sergei Naryshkin has told parliamentary colleagues that Russian lawmakers would not interfere in Ukraine’s affairs but would offer independent and professional recommendations to its legislators, “members of one legal family” and working within the same system.
Naryshkin's pledge addressed the opening meeting of a Duma task group analyzing legislative procedures and legal acts passed in Ukraine, warning that “hasty and uncoordinated changes of the Constitution might result in further risks to Ukraine's stability and the welfare of its citizens”.
The importance of human life was paramount and recognition of it was the basis for all modern law, Naryshkin said, adding that “Ukraine's domestic conflict has already claimed lives”.
“Russia and Ukraine are members of one legal family,” the speaker said. “Our countries' legislation is formed within the same legal system: the system of continental law. Our course, our conclusions and recommendations will be clear to our colleagues.”
“I believe they'll be useful at least to those who would like to hear our independent and professional conclusions and recommendations.”
