Matviyenko called the new version of the Constitution is absolutely legitimate

The speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko called the new version of the Constitution is absolutely legitimate and stressed that this document is truly national.

"We should not forget that the Constitution of' 93 did not vote Bashkortostan voted Tatarstan and in many regions, too, was not a General legitimacy. Today after the amendment and such a vast number of the population came to vote and support it is possible to say that the Constitution 2020 has an absolute legitimacy. And this is extremely important, it is also necessary to remind", - said Matvienko.

She added that the Constitution adopted in 1993, has its value, but in many ways it was the adaptation of Western models and Western practices to Russian realities, while the document fell to very important questions concerning Russia's history, national traditions and mentality.

"Therefore, differences in the Constitution of' 93 and the Constitution in 2020, the Constitution in 2020 is a Russian national Constitution," — said Matvienko.
