State Duma deputies argued at the plenary session about who applies to «those in power». Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin has noticed that these include all parliamentarians — people who make laws and are responsible for them.

The reason for the dispute was the remark of the Deputy from LDPR Vasily Vlasov in the discussion of bills on partial decriminalization of the article on extremism. According to Vlasov, the liberal democratic party also advocated the revision of this article, and found no support, but everything changed once the initiative has made «those in power».

«What a concept «those in power»? This is a new term that you enter into circulation? New social group appeared? Are you her representative?» — applied to Vlasov Volodin.

He stressed that it is necessary to determine who is included in this group, and such accusations to anything.

«All the same wage. If you have it less, we will discuss this issue. So we all those in power. Colleagues, do you mind? No. Right? Right. Here is Nikolai Kolomeitsev (Communist party Deputy. — Approx. ed.), too, believes that it belongs to. Vasily Maksimovich, so we all submitted to the Russian Parliament, which adopts laws and they must bear responsibility», — concluded the Chairman of the state Duma.
