The updated Constitution of the Russian Federation may introduce the concept of "federal territories" with direct federal subordination. This statement was made by co-chair of the working group on the preparation of proposals for amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation Andrey Klishas, - RIA Novosti reports.
According to the Russian senator, the Federation Council committees on constitutional law and federal structure will work out such an initiative on Thursday.
Russian political scientists expressed the view that the concept of "federal territories" is designed for the unrecognized "republics" of Donbass, Abkhazia and South Ossetia, occupied by Russia, as well as for Transnistria. "A promising form. Especially for regions intending to join the Russian Federation", - Alexey Chesnakov, political strategist from the team of Vladislav Surkov, in particular, wrote on his Telegram channel.
"An analogue of Puerto Rico. It is the "DNR","LNR", Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Transnistria for us today. There is an opinion that there will be more such territories. They definitely need a status in the new Constitution. If there are no guts to directly accept to the composition (of Russia - OstroV)", - Kharkiv separatist Konstantin Dolgov, now calling himself a Russian political scientist, agreed with him.
