“We support the initiative of the factions’ leaders that it is necessary to understand in detail who can stand behind the riots in Moscow and attempts to influence the course of the election campaign in our country. The intervention of anyone from outside in Russia's internal affairs is unacceptable, it is a threat to sovereignty,” said Vasilii Piskarev, Chairman of the Committee on Security and Corruption Control.

The parliamentarian reminded that law enforcement authorities have already launched an investigation into the interference, and the relevant committee intends to request all the necessary information from the Investigative Committee of Russia, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the General Prosecutor's Office and other departments.

“If in the near future the leadership of the State Duma and the Council of the State Duma decide to create an inter-factional commission to analyze this information, then we are ready to start its work immediately, without waiting for the start of the fall session. This is a matter of protecting the national security of our country, and waiting is just unacceptable,” said the Chairman of the Committee on Security and Corruption Control.

Earlier, the initiative to create such a commission was proposed by the leaders of all factions of the State Duma. Its creation is fully consistent with the State Duma Regulations, noted First Deputy Head of the United Russia Faction Andrey Isaev.

“Russia is a sovereign country, we will figure out what is happening here by ourselves and we will not allow anyone to interfere in our internal affairs. Elections in the Russian Federation are an internal affair of our country,” said Head of the Just Russia faction Sergei Mironov.
