MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. The basic work on implementation of the Russian legislation in Crimea and Sevastopol is completed in time and correctly, speaker of the upper house of parliament (Federation Council) Valentina Matviyenko said on Monday.
Over the past 12 months, the legislators adopted nine federal constitutional laws, 50 federal laws, 156 laws were adopted by Crimea’s local parliament and 124 — by Sevastopol’s.
The speaker pointed to the timely efforts to bring the new territories to the ruble zone, to pay pensions and wages there. "Everything was done in time and well," she said.
As Crimea and Sevastopol joined Russia, the legislators faced unprecedented tasks of "making a new legislative base in very short time," the speaker said. The federal and regional legislators have been working in one team "as they were inspired by the historic event of reunion of Crimea and Sevastopol [with Russia]."
However, she said, it is impossible to settle that big tasks without problems within just one year. "But people living in Crimea and Sevastopol have demonstrated understanding."
