First Deputy head of the faction of the Communist Nikolai Kolomeitsev said that the faction would defiantly leave the plenary hall of the state Duma during the speech of the leader of LDPR Vladimir Zhirinovsky, if his words will sound insulting.

Zhirinovsky in his speech on Wednesday touched on the Communists. «So take the night of power in 1917 and in 1991-m pass, then go to the podium and we are taught logic. Stop saying such things. The party that seized by armed power, it is the party of criminals, and should not celebrate the anniversary of your crime of seizure of power, and for the court to give those who are still alive today,» he said.

After Zhirinovsky’s speech in the plenary hall noise was made. Later, the deputies returned to discussion of the leader of the liberal democratic party.

«I apologize that I had shown the vehemence and without a microphone spoke. But I’m just asking the Bureau… written on the agenda: speeches of representatives of factions on topical socio-economic, political and other issues. If you go direct insults, you are obliged to correct you. Otherwise, I promise you that if there is no apology from this podium – we have no criminals here, we’re all deputies of the State Duma, we will defiantly get up and leave during a speech of Zhirinovsky,» said the latter.

He also asked the Duma Commission on ethics to audit the speech of Zhirinovsky.

«Dear colleagues, we have already said – you can’t go to the person. In the case of transition to a person, you know, we always ask the reporter not to do it and stop if this happens. Everything else depends on us, it is political culture,» — commented the speaker of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin.

«For its part, requested a transcript of the speech, I will try until the end of our plenary meeting again to back this up, in that case, if there is a transition to the individual. Everything else, colleagues, let’s discuss, including in the framework of the faction and in the framework of the Council of the state Duma», — said the Chairman of the lower house.
