The Chairman of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation of the eighth convocation. Elected in single mandate constituency № 163 (Saratov constituency - Saratov Oblast)
instructed the relevant committees — on International Affairs and on Issues of Family, Women and Children — to study the issue and prepare a draft appeal.

“Children, civilians, old people, defenseless people are dying,” said the Chairman of the State Duma. “Russia made proposals, but the USA and its hangers-on did not support them. Brazil made proposals, but the USA, along with the same cronies, again did not support those proposals. The world must evaluate the situation. Therefore, colleagues, we should highlight these issues, and it is important for us that they should be closely monitored,” he added.

“Yesterday we discussed the issue of the US blockade of Cuba, little strokes fell great oaks. Last year's latest UN General Assembly’s resolution was supported by 185 countries, only two countries did not support it and vetoed it — the USA and Israel. Therefore, we should state our position and, most importantly, defend it, especially on the issue of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the USA should be blamed as all this happened due to the fact that the resolution of the UN General Assembly was not respected,” added Vyacheslav Volodin.
