Krasnodar, 6 February – Yug Times. The agenda of the regular session of the regional Legislative Assembly held last week in Krasnodar consisted of more than fifty issues, mainly of the social and economic spheres. At first, the deputies adopted in two readings amendments to the regional law “On awards of the Krasnodar region for the commitment to the Kuban Cossack movement”. A new medal - Veteran of the Kuban Cossack Host - has been included into the list of the awards. It will be conferred upon merited Cossacks aged at least 65 and having served in the Kuban Cossack Host for at least 25 years.
One of the key issues reviewed by the deputies was introduction of changes to regional laws concerning agricultural issues, competences of local self-governments regarding support of agricultural producers, and organisation of activities aimed at prevention and eradication of animal diseases.
The deputies adopted in the first reading the law amending the existing regional law on viticulture and manufacture of products from processed grapes. The new amendments were meant to improve the quality of locally produced wines and to clothe the Regional tasting Commission with additional powers. Besides, the session adopted the draft agreement of inter-parliamentary cooperation between the Legislative Assemblies of the Krasnodar region and of the city of Sevastopol. “Close business links were established between the [Kuban] Legislative Assembly and our nearest neighbours - Crimea and Sevastopol, long ago,” Parliamentary Chairman Yuri Burlachko stressed. “The launch of the Crimean bridge made them even stronger.”
The agreement provides for cooperation between the two parliaments on many issues, like exchange of experiences in the legislative work, development and discussion of drafts of federal laws, and expansion of business and friendly contacts.
