MOSCOW, June 25, 2:10 /ITAR-TASS/. The Federation Council (FC) upper house of the Russian parliament, on Wednesday will examine an agenda item concerning a revocation of consent to the use of the Armed Forces in Ukraine's territory.
Prior to the House plenary session, the theme is to be discussed at a joint meeting of the FC's three committees, those on defence and security, on international affairs, and on constitutional legislation. The joint meeting will be held behind closed doors, a member of one of the committees said.
In all, the agenda of the 357th plenary session of the upper house of parliament includes about 40 items.
These include, in particular, a draft address by the FC to UNESCO with a call to condemn the Ukrainian authorities' arbitrariness with regard to Russian journalists. The FC will also draw the attention of the International Organization of Journalists to numerous instances of violation of the rights of the media in Ukraine. The House members also plan to ratify the RF Treaty with Kazakhstan on Goodneighbourliness, and an agreement with Armenia on the deliveries of natural gas.
