MOSCOW, 11 Jan. A total ban for deputies to use cellphones and any gadgets at private meetings of the state Duma will be fair step, said the first Deputy head of the Duma Committee on rules Nadezhda Gerasimova.
After the closed governmental hour the Minister of defence of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu in the state Duma the Chairman of the Duma Committee for security and combating corruption Dmitry Gorobtsov (“Fair Russia”) has declared to journalists that intend to initiate a draft resolution on the ban during private meetings of the chamber using means of communication. According to him, many deputies did not follow the recommendation of Council’s management. He later said he plans to submit a draft resolution in January 2016.
“As for me, if the plenary was forbidden to carry phones and various other means of communication, then perhaps it would be correct, and what decision will be, don’t know,” he said on Monday.
