MOSCOW, 4 Mar – RIA Novosti. The Federation Council is not preparing any legislative initiatives on single pickets, the speech of Senator Lyudmila Narusova at the meeting of the constitutional committee about the picketers was her personal opinion concerning a specific picket on that day, chairman of the committee Andrei Klishas told RIA Novosti. “There are no such initiatives, Lyudmila Borisovna. At the committee, Narusova voiced her own point of view, which concerned only a specific person on the steps of the Federation Council on a specific day, “he said.
On Tuesday, at a committee meeting, Narusova said that it was unpleasant for her to see “marginal, homeless people with incomprehensible demands” near the Federation Council. In response, Klishas jokingly invited her to come up with a bill banning single pickets.
Later, Narusova explained that on that day, ex-President Mikhail Gorbachev, whom she “respects very much,” was celebrating his birthday, a picket was standing at the Federation Council demanding that Gorbachev be brought to justice. In her opinion, this could be associated with the general position of the entire Federation Council.
