Moscow, March 21 (RFE/RL) - Russia's lower house of
parliament, the State Duma, has no immediate plans to reconsider its
resolution aimed at restoring the Soviet Union.
Yesterday the Federation Council - the upper house - called on
the Duma to review its decision on the resolution.
President Boris Yeltsin sent to the duma a draft law confirming
the legitimacy of acting Russian state institutions.
But our correspondent quotes Duma representatives as saying that
Yeltsin's draft is not on tomorrow's agenda of the lower house.
Meanwhile, the Duma is planning to discuss US Secretary of State
Warren Christopher's comments criticizing the Duma resolution.
