MOSCOW, June 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Lawmakers of the State Duma have suggested that Russia should prolong sojourns for Ukrainian refugees and relieve them of administrative responsibility for violating the current 90-day-long limits of stay.

MP Otary Arshba, chairman of the United Russia party's Commission for work with Compatriots, said at a plenary meeting on Tuesday that "a vast amount of petitions have been sent by the people who found themselves hostage to this situation and formally violated the law and so are to be deported back (to Ukraine)."

The government is expected to adopt the decision prolonging Ukrainian refugees' stay in Russia to 180 days in line with the lawmakers' proposal.
