The Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation

is the upper chamber of the parliament of the Russian Federation. Its main function is to carry out the legislative powers. The Federation Council like each member of the Federation Council has the right of legislative initiative. The organization of work of the Federation Council is done in two main directions:

• the Federation Council jointly with the State Duma takes part in elaboration of draft laws, consideration of laws and adoption of decisions on them;

• in implementing the right of legislative initiative the Federation Council elaborates by its own the draft federal laws and federal constitutional laws.

On 5 December 2001 Sergey Mironov was elected the Chairman of the Federation Council.

On 30 January 2002 the Federation Council has adopted a new Regulation of the chamber that was based — according to the Chairman of the Federation Council, S. Mironov — on three main principles: the exact reflection of its constitutional powers, preservation of continuity in work, and creation of a structure of the chamber that would be the closest to the structure of committees of the State Duma.

The main objective of the Federation Council — according to the Chairman of the Federation Council, S. Mironov — is to strengthen the «federative model of the state-legal self-organization in Russia, unity of its political, social-economic and cultural space».
