PACE tells him to listen to the right of the Russian Federation meetings

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe calls on the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation to strictly follow the advice of the Venice Commission of the adoption of new laws. In fact PACE blames our Parliament's approval of the draft law on meetings, reports Interfax.

In the draft resolution, PACE provides a reminder that the 10-member Council of Europe to this day are under the monitoring procedure. In addition to Russian Federation, "lucky" to Azerbaijan, Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Moldova, Serbia, Ukraine and Montenegro. As part of the resolution relating to the Russian Federation, it is reported that commission approved the preliminary draft monitoring reports in the Russian Federation, also for Turkey and Montenegro, and the reports were oriented to the authorities of these countries in order that they may, within three months commented on it.

Interviewees "However," experts generally agree in their own conclusions.

Vyacheslav Lysakov, first deputy chairman of the Duma Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State:

— I believe this is a gross interference in the home affairs. Let them recommend to their employees, which they establish contacts or not to install. This is our business and our right. The Parliament of the Russian Federation — is the legislative body and immediately presentable power, there is a specific work schedule. Which means "to establish a dialogue with the opposition" to me is not very clear. We have an opposition faction, with whom we work, which head 14 committees — whether it is to establish a dialogue with the opposition? We have included in the governing bodies of the opposition factions, they head actually half the committees are included in the Duma and the Council, etc. Is this is infringement? Completely no. And if we are talking about a street opposition, then stupidly establish contact with the participants even sanctioned rallies. Even difficult to design, how to do it, because we pass an unlimited number of social events in the form of pickets, meetings, etc. And they have very different slogans: from the political to the economic. How pochetaemye our colleagues from the PACE behold the establishment of the dialogue?

I stress again that I think it's interference in home affairs. In what direction do we go, who to contact, what law-creating trends — it home affairs The Russian Federation, the Russian parliament, the Federal Assembly. Their calls quite abstract, I would not even referred to it by political speculation than fact. It's just hot air.

Leonid Polyakov, a political scientist, doctor:

— The Venice commission called "Democracy through Law" and tries to make itself a universal monitoring of the legislation from the standpoint of its compliance with the main principles of democracy. Problem loyal, generous. Monitoring — a useful thing in any way, including from the standpoint of comparing the experiences of different countries. But. Here is fundamentally aware of the aims and objectives and under no circumstances should you turn the commission into a tool of manipulation or interference in the home affairs other countries. Since the aspect of how democratic one or the other law, no one is installed. It is always a matter of a judgment, and, ultimately, the evaluation of this or another law as non-conforming to democratic norms can always be challenged.

Because councils — or more precisely, the findings of this commission — become someone's inventory and is used as an argument, like, say, in the case of controversy over the amendments to the law on rallies and demonstrations in Russia — here I think it's completely sverhizbytochno. Substantiate the conclusions of the so-called Venice Commission of the unacceptability of our law — it is simply incorrect and method of political manipulation by certain political circles.
