Member of the Federation Council Committee on constitutional legislation and state construction Alexei Pushkov (Perm Krai) said that the proposal of the leader of LDPR, the Deputy of the State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky on the elimination of the Federation Council has no relation to real politics. About this Pushkov wrote on his page on the microblogging network Twitter.

According to the Senator vellus, Zhirinovsky his statement about the elimination of the Federation Council is just trying to attract attention “in terms of involucrum and concentration on the coronavirus”.

Pushkov stressed that the leader of the liberal democratic party is “nothing serious”.

“Continue this rhetoric will not have,” writes Senator cannon.

As REGNUM reported earlier, Vladimir Zhirinovsky proposed to discuss the possibility of liquidation of the Federation Council. Zhirinovsky believes that Russia has too many “unnecessary deputies and officials”.

It is worth noting that earlier Zhirinovsky proposed to halve the number of deputies of the State Duma.
