During the 137th Assembly of the IPU in St. Petersburg, the draft proposed by the Russian side of the resolution “Towards the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Democracy: the commonality of our diversity” will be discussed. Andrei Klimov, deputy chairman of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs, told journalists about this. According to him, the document is intended to confirm the principles of the Universal Declaration of Democracy.
He also recalled that during the Assembly it is planned to consider the initiative of the Interparliamentary Assembly of the CIS member states on the establishment of the International Day of Parliamentaryism on June 30 in honor of the first session of the IPU in 1889.
In turn, member of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs Oleg Morozov believes that today democracy itself needs protection. “Democracy is diverse. But there is a right of all parliamentarians to express their point of view, “he said.
The senator is sure that the more parliamentary structures, the more stable and secure the world becomes. “Russia in the Ministry of Railways creates conditions that noted that the Ministry of Railways is the only inter-parliamentary platform, which today is not” monopolized “by any one country or group of countries. “The Ministry of Railways is a properly arranged platform for constructive conversation, for the opportunity to negotiate and resolve complex issues. This is a platform for discussing the most acute problems of the modern world, “said Oleg Morozov.
