[03.12.2013] Grigory Yavlinsky proposed to improve law on Federal Contract System Press Release, November 28, 2013 Leader of YABLOKO faction in the Legislative Assembly of St.Petersburg Grigory Yavlinsky proposed to cut the propensity for corruption of the Law on the Federal Contract System. Yavlinsky introduced the draft into the Legislative Assembly.
One of the provisions of the law on the Federal Contract System establishes the right of the client to take the decision on unilateral non-performance of a contract according to the civil legislation. “Such an approach gives the client a very broad option to unilaterally terminate the contract, an operational and service contract in the first place”, said Grigory Yavlinsky. This way, according to the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, the client can cancel the contract at the moment of its performance and pay the contractor only part of the set price in proportion to the work that has been done.
"Today Ukraine should spare no effort to avoid bloodshed, prevent provocations and it is a must to preserve the unity of the people which is facing a very important political choice," Grigory Yavlinsky said.
