MOSCOW, January 16. /TASS/. The State Duma must be ready for a constitutional dialogue with the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine’s parliament) and provide assistance to carry out a constitutional reform in Ukraine, the Russian lower house’s Speaker Sergey Naryshkin told a meeting of a Duma working group, discussing Ukrainian legislation.
“I must say that despite the aggressive rhetoric from our Ukrainian colleagues, our deputies must be ready for a constitutional dialogue with Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada deputies,” Naryshkin said.
“If our assistance is needed, we must be ready to help the Ukrainian colleagues to carry out a full constitutional reform, without which, I am sure, it is impossible to achieve peace and accord in Ukraine,” he added.
