MOSCOW, March 21. /ITAR-TASS/. The Federation Council's Committee for Constitutional Legislation recommended the upper house to approve a federal constitutional law on the accession of the Republic of Crimea, the city of Sevastopol to Russia and formation of new constituent entities in Russia.
Chairman of the parliamentary committee Andrei Klishas noted at a committee’s meeting quality of lawmaking despite a brief period of time for drafting the law. “In this case, this is a very qualitative text from the legal point of view,” he noted.
The Russian lawmaker also added that after the law comes into force, amendments would not be needed in the Russian Constitution, because this would be done on the basis of this document.
On Thursday, State Duma lower house of parliament has ratified the Treaty on Reunification of the Republic of Crimea with Russia and has enacted the law on forming new constituent entities in the Russian Federation.
