Deputies it was offered to them to ask questions, unexpectedly were indignant with the fact of occurrence of the next bill on an association theme. So, Valentine Romanov (Communist Party of the Russian Federation) tried to learn from the representative of the president, how many still it is necessary to accept such documents and what sense in it . Mister Kosopkin has answered that how many it is required, so much and it is necessary, admitted that the plan as on association is not present that .

- And at us in general - that in the Constitution all subjects of the Russian Federation are named, - Victor Kuznetsov (Communist Party of the Russian Federation) has come on the other hand. - Also what will be with the Constitution, eventually? We are engaged in this all business and as though we do not notice that in the Constitution each subject of the Russian Federation has the status and is defined as the subject!

Alexander Kosopkin has concerned a question indulgently, having declared what to worry there is nothing:

- it is valid, it is necessary to change the Constitution, particularly article 65, but it is allowed to us to do it.

Deputy Nikolay Kurjanovicha who expelled recently from LDPR and has received the status of the independent deputy, absolutely another in the meantime excited:

- And whether all those plentiful promises which were said by a never-ending train on the eve of a referendum will be fulfilled? For example, about financing of the nature protection actions, concerning lakes Baikal, and about completion of the distressful bridge through the river Angara?

the representative of the president at first has hastened otkrestitsja from hung was over it of responsibility for the light future of the incorporated Irkutsk region, having declared that it not the unique person who is responsible for execution of arrangements . But then has magnanimously declared:

- We are obliged to execute even that is not registered in the law.

after that doubting the Duma does not remain: at necessary for acceptance of the constitutional law a minimum in 300 voices for the document 428 deputies have unanimously expressed.
