He drew attention to the integration processes in the European Union.

“We are very far from what has recently been achieved in the European Parliament, in the European Union,” said the Chairman of the State Duma.

He is convinced that the integration tasks should be solved by the union institutions, including the Parliamentary Assembly.

“There are still a lot of capabilities of the Union State Parliament. They are enormous. And we have to do a lot”, said Vyacheslav Volodin and added that, first of all, he meant the economic and social issues, and relevant decisions would make lives of citizens of Russia and Belarus better.
