The majority of the senators prefer to spend holiday in Russia, although they aren’t forbidden to have a rest abroad, said the speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko.
«The Federation Council does not control where the senators go on vacation. If they go to the «risky» country, it is at their own risk, but more and more members prefer to holiday in Russia — the Crimea, the Caucasus, the North and the Altai region,» — she said at a press conference.
According to her, this is due to the fact that the opportunities to spend a vacation in Russia at a decent level is increasing. Matviyenko said that she will leave «two or three» of the Russian regions. «Go to the Crimea in relation to other places is solved. In any case, as always, will be a vacation combined with work», — said the speaker.
She also stressed that despite the busy schedule, needs a vacation. «All senators have the opportunity to take a vacation, otherwise productivity will fall sharply,» — said Matvienko.
