Duma withdrew Armenian genocide bill

The draft resolution on the “so-called” Armenian genocide has been withdrawn from the Duma, the lower house of the Russian Parliament which was supported by the far-right politician Vladimir Jirinovski’s LDPR party.

Alexey Mitrofanov who had supported similar anti-Turkish moves at the Duma over the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) tried to bring the issue to the Parliament floor. The Turkish Embassy in Ankara has started initiatives both at Parliament and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs as the hearings on the bill was scheduled for yesterday.

Mitrofanov withdrew his bill yesterday morning indicating that `he needed to work on the bill more’ and added that he would bring the bill to Parliament floor in the future.

The Duma has accepted a bill on the so-called Armenian genocide in 1995.

The political structure of the Duma dramatically changed in the wake of the 1999 elections as far-right and communist deputies were replaced by reformist-liberal lawmakers.
