MOSCOW, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Hastiness of decisions made by the Ukrainian parliament testifies to temporality of the present authorities and poses a threat to the Ukrainian society, Russian State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin told a session of the working group analyzing legislative procedures and laws passed in Ukraine.
“The lawmaking process proceeds actively. Last week, 83 bills were submitted to the Verkhovna Rada (the parliament),” the speaker said.
He said the conflict inside the country continued, and the present-day authorities were not ready to meet regions halfway. “Mass protests against the policy of Kiev continue in Ukraine’s south-east,” the speaker said. He also confirmed that “Russia’s proposals to the Venice Commission to analyze the legitimacy of decisions passed by Verkhovna Rada were blocked by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE)”.
