Held in Russia protests indicate that there are “systemic problems and contradictions” and therefore the legislature ought not to gloss over them, said the Federation Council member from Irkutsk region Vyacheslav markhayev.
Speaking at the next meeting of the upper house of the Russian Parliament, representing the Communist party, the Senator pointed out to the rest of the legislators on the need to take action on the facts shown in the investigation of the Fund of struggle against corruption (FBK) Alexei Navalny.
“First and foremost, should require law enforcement officials from the General Prosecutor’s office investigate all the facts related to income and assets, Prime Minister [Dmitry Medvedev]. Whether these circumstances are true?” said Markhayev (text of the speech provided by a representative of the Senator).
In published in early March, the investigation FBC “you do not Dimon” States that the head of the government Dmitry Medvedev has “huge tracts of land in the elite areas, manages yachts, apartments in historic mansions, agro-complexes and wineries in Russia and abroad”. Funds associated with the Prime Minister, as the authors of the investigation, received over 70 billion rubles in donations.

How did anti-corruption rally in Moscow
“Whether we keep silent or will take, at least at the legislative level some action?” — turned to his fellow Senator.
However, no orders to law enforcement agencies during the last Wednesday meeting of the Council of the Federation was not accepted. And later when the Senator from Tuva Lyudmila Narusova has noticed that the idea Marhaeva “have not been developed,” the head of the chamber Valentina Matvienko has explained that “has not given a legal order, because he [Markhayev] his has not formulated”.
“If articulated, I would have supported him”, — said Matvienko, noting that “we cannot pretend that nothing happens.”
In a press-service Marhaeva explained that the necessary legal assignment formulation is prepared and the Senator “will not leave this business.” According to Margieva, a legal order from Matvienko for the development of the bill he has not yet received as “really not very well formulated the idea” in the speech. The member of the Federation Council said that it intends to finalize a statement on March 30 to make it to receive instructions from the Chairman of the upper house.
During the ensuing after the meeting, a briefing Matviyenko reiterated the need to abandon attempts to pretend that nothing is happening.
“All the authorities, of course, have to meet people, to understand why they come to the protests they care about to solve these issues, discuss the solutions to those questions, and so forth,” — said Matvienko.
On 29 March the leader of the party “Fair Russia” Sergey Mironov at a briefing in the state Duma Medvedev has subjected to criticism for his silence in response to the claim Navalny, saying that “it makes sense to clearly not answer to the gentleman who initiated all this in narrow political gain and not for the real fight against corruption, and citizens”.
“If the 14.5 million citizens of the country that a look, a politician should know that people care about and why call one person responded to tens of thousands of people”, — said Mironov at a briefing in the Duma.
March 24 the number of deputies of the state Duma from the Communist party in the Duma introduced a draft Protocol order in connection with allegations of the head of government “in corrupt behavior.” The document contains a proposal to entrust the Duma Committee for security and counteraction of corruption to organize the test set out in the serious condition the facts, however, to “clarify the degree of certainty” and also “to consider possible prosecution of the persons appearing in the material, or persons involved in the publication of materials in the case of recognition of them invalid”.
Earlier the Deputy from the Communist party Valery Rashkin has sent a request with the requirement to verify “about the palaces and villas of the” Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev the head of the TFR, as well as the heads of the FSB, interior Ministry and Prosecutor General’s office.
Medvedev’s press Secretary Natalya Timakova said that the film Bulk “is pronounced pre-election character,” a comment on “propaganda attacks the opposition and the convict character” is meaningless.
In turn, the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin “in detail” not familiar with the investigation of the FBC.
“Media reports have seen. This is not the first examples of the work of this famous convict a citizen. Nothing to add to what was said the press Secretary of the Prime Minister”, — said Peskov.
