The amendments proposed by the party say that the term of operative use of Russian armed forces outside the country should not be longer than 60 days, and the non-operational period should not exceed a year. To extend the terms, the president needs to apply for approval to the Federation Council. The amendments are planned to be added to the Law on Defense.
The bill was introduced to the profile committees of the St. Petersburg, Karelian and Pskov legislatures, according to the chairman of Yabloko, Emilia Slabunova, and the deputy of Pskov regional assembly Lev Shlosberg.
To enter the federal level, proposed amendments should be approved by the deputies of regional parliaments, while Yabloko does not have a majority in any of the three legislative assemblies that have introduced the bill.
As it was reported earlier Vladimir Putin decided that the issue of peacekeepers "would benefit the settlement of the conflict in the southeast of Ukraine." And he instructed the Russian Foreign Ministry to submit a draft resolution to the UN Security Council for consideration. Russian version of the decision on peacekeepers in Donbas is certainly not acceptable for Ukraine.
