SEVASTOPOL, April 03, ITAR-TASS/. Sevastopol’s legislature has decided not to consider bills submitted by the former Ukrainian state administration.
On Thursday, the presidium of the Sevastopol Legislative Assembly excluded from the agenda of the forthcoming session 33 bills that had been submitted by the Ukrainian administration of the city. Lawmakers said these bills could not be considered after Crimea’s reunification with Russia.
“The bulk of bills came from the state administration, a structure that exists no longer,” speaker of the Legislative Assembly Yuri Doinikov said. “A number of bills have become absolutely obsolete and need changes both in formal terms and in terms of their subject matter.” More to it, these bills had financial provisions denominated in Ukrainian hryvnias, whereas all budgetary operations in Sevastopol had been switched to Russian roubles.
Lawmakers decided to send these bills back to the city administration to wait until the City Charter was adopted or until similar documents were submitted by the acting governor.
The next session of the legislature will consider a complete or partial moratorium on land allocation. As of now, there are about 5,000 applications for the allocation of land plots, which cannot be done under the Ukrainian laws.
