“Yes, we are adapting to the Russian legislation. But this does not mean that we are blindly copying these documents: we are taking the best of them, in the Russian Federation and such republics as Belarus and Crimea,” Karyakin was quoted by the official news agency, the Luhansk Information Center, as saying.
“Besides, Ukraine also had good laws, why should we reject this experience? We should use everything what will do good for people,” the parliament speaker stressed.
The lawmakers of the LPR’s parliament, the People’s Council, are currently considering a total of 65 bills, Karyakin said. The leader of the Lugansk republic, Igor Plotnitsky, earlier said tax, administrative, civil and criminal codes needed to be adopted.
The LPR’s leadership said in late May the legislation would be based on the Russian laws as the Ukrainian laws were unsuitable due to it being “written for oligarchs,” and the country’s oligarch-dominated economy needed to be demonopolised.
