MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. Russia’s State Duma is prepared for any contacts to restore inter-parliamentary relations with Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada, Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin said at a meeting of the working group for Ukraine on Thursday.
“It is to be hoped the newly-elected Verkhovna Rada will make its contribution to ending the civil war, resolving the crisis, de-escalating tensions and establishing a normal dialogue between Russia and Ukraine,” he said.
Naryshkin described Ukraine’s newly elected parliament as a qualitative new one. “It is too early to say there is continuity in lawmaking. We shall be able to judge the nature of Ukraine’s new parliament by the first legal acts that it adopts. The activity of our working group is very relevant and we shall proceed along the same lines,” Naryshkin said.
He pointed out that the Ukrainian parliamentary election campaign “was held amid very complicated conditions of the deepest split in the Ukrainian society, massive human rights abuse, violence against candidates and campaigners and pressures on unwanted mass media.”
“This is not the full list of violations and restrictions on the free expression of will, though,” Naryshkin said.
