Vodolatsky appealed to the speaker of the state Duma Sergei Naryshkin with a request “if possible, do without a lot of break to watch football”.

This Naryshkin noticed that in this case, MPs need to work more actively then the hours of voting, which concludes the work in the Duma, can be moved to an earlier time, and the Parliament will have time to work in committees”.

Vodolatsky is a Cossack General, doctor of sociological Sciences and an academician of the Academy of social Sciences.

The hours of voting traditionally begins in the Duma in 17 hours, whereas the soccer match starts today at 16 o’clock Moscow time. The break in the Duma provides for 15 to 16 hours. At the same time today in the Duma have come the Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov.

We will remind that last week the Duma has ended with loud scandal: the mandate for not attending the plenary room was stripped Ilya Ponomarev. In the room when discussing this question there were only 123 deputies, and to vote their number increased only slightly, reaching two hundred people. However, the decision was made 413 votes “for”: MPs have voted by proxy, and left his colleagues like this in the last months did and Ponomarev.

Read, as it was deprived of the mandate Ponomareva.
