Parliament Crimea contacted State Duma And Council of the Federation with a legislative initiative, the purpose of which is to change certain provisions of the federal constitutional law relating to borders with Ukraine and delimitation of maritime space in the Sea of Azov. This was announced by the head of the Committee on Legislation of the Crimean Parliament Sergey Trofimov. His words lead RIA News.
As Trofimov noted, the Republic of Crimea no longer has land borders with Ukraine. In addition, the Sea of Azov became an internal sea of the Russian Federation. Accordingly, the provisions on the delimitation of maritime space in this case also lost their meaning. “Based on this, we are bringing the document into compliance,” the agency’s interlocutor said.
According to the deputy, changes to the federal constitutional law will be adopted by the lower and upper houses of the Russian parliament in a short time. Next, it will be sent for consideration to the State Duma and the Federation Council and must be adopted by a qualified majority. “The question is obvious, I think there will be no difficulties with its adoption in the autumn session,” Trofimov said.
