Kremlin lawyers worked on the law on anti-sanctions
But until the state Duma adopts it in its original form.
On Tuesday, the state Duma adopts in first reading bill on the counter USA. All Duma factions, Kommersant said that the vote in support of the document. The second reading of the bill will undergo significant changes. According to “Kommersant”, serious comments expressed by the state legal Directorate of the President (GPU), which helped to correct it for future adoption. Initially, the presidential administration (PA) opposed the adoption of the document even in the first reading.
On Monday, after the Duma Council the speaker of Parliament Vyacheslav Volodin said that he hoped for the support of all factions in the consideration of the first reading of the bill on the counter. “If the bill under the signature of our members (referring to Gennady Zyuganov.— “B”), how we will not vote for him?” — said “Kommersant”, the coordinator of the Communist party faction Nikolai Kolomeitsev. The first Deputy head of the faction “Fair Russia” Mikhail Emelyanov reminded “Kommersant” that the faction only two members Fedot Tumusov and Valery Hartung is not joined as co-sponsors to the project. Vice-speaker of the state Duma from LDPR Igor Lebedev, answering the question “Kommersant”, whether in the fraction of loose or consolidated vote on the project, said: “we Have a free vote does not happen.” Thus mister Lebedev has told “Kommersant” that he I abstain from voting: “the Meaning of this bill not see. If desired, the sanctions can be entered and existing laws (the law “On special economic measures”.— “Kommersant”). And the new bill about? He has not introduced any sanctions.”
Note that the original version of the bill, which will be taken on Tuesday in the first reading, the list of possible sanctions includes. However, this approach has found understanding not at all. “A rather detailed conclusion”, comments were prepared by the Public chamber, told “Kommersant” one of the participants of the hearings on the bill, which passed on may 8. According to “Kommersant”, for example, it was noted that, under paragraph 5 of the draft, the Russian company will have to terminate or suspend international cooperation with American companies in the field of aviation. The adoption of the law could call into question the interaction of VSMPO-AVISMA Corporation involved in the supply of titanium, with the American Corporation “Boeing”, and also created the risk that in response to “Boeing” will withdraw from Russian companies their planes. In conclusion OP, it was noted that many Russian clinics work on high-tech equipment from the United States.
According to “Kommersant”, criticized the draft and the GPU. Comments of the Kremlin lawyers were contained on four sheets. According to “Kommersant”, in AP opposed the adoption of the draft in this form, even in the first reading, believing that it harms the Russian, not foreign companies.
So now it took the draft resolution of the Council (also to be approved on Tuesday), which will record approaches to the transformation of the bill in the second reading. Earlier the interlocutor of Kommersant in the Russian state Duma said that the decision will help “save the face of the authors of the project” and to reassure all stakeholders: “in the past so often did with difficult bills in the social and public sphere.” Vyacheslav Volodin, explaining the “y” necessity of adoption of the resolution, said that “it is easier to do the procedure.”
According to “Kommersant”, the wording of the bill a second reading was prepared in the beginning of last week. Direct participation in its revision, took the GPU. After that, Vyacheslav Volodin said that the second reading of the draft disappear mention “specific industries or products.” On may 11, he again held a meeting of the Council on legislation. The participants continued to discuss the original text of the bill.
