The Federation Council upper house of parliament cancelled on Wednesday its March 1 resolution which granted the right to the president to use Russian military forces in Ukraine. As many as 153 Russian senators voted for this decision and one lawmaker voted against it.
“This is what I want to draw your attention to: our fundamental assessment of the situation has not changed — an anti-constitutional coup took place in the country, seizure of power with the use of force, which resulted in acute crisis phenomena that Ukraine is seeing now,” the head of the upper house’s committee for constitutional legislation, Andrei Klishas, said.
“Unfortunately, today the Ukrainian authorities forget that it is the people who are the main power holder,” Crimean senator Olga Kovitidi said for her part. “I am sure that a political constitutional reform that will take place in Ukraine, will get things straightened out,” she added.
