noted earlier, that the question of interfering in the internal affairs of the Russian Federation is extremely important, and the decision to create a commission to investigate this issue is logical.

“We made a decision based on the principle that our country strictly adheres, non-interference in the sovereign affairs of other states. We believe that this principle should be the basis for building relations with the Russian Federation,” he stressed.

“We will do everything in order to ensure our sovereignty,” said Viacheslav Volodin.
