KIEV, November 21. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament did not support any bill over the treatment of convicts abroad, first of all convicted former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko. All six bills gained no more than 195 votes with 226 required votes.
Deputies from the Party of Regions and the Communist Party did not participate in the voting.
Deputy from the Party of Regions Vladimir Oleinik does not rule out that the parliament may convene for an extraordinary session. “An extraordinary session is not ruled out,” Oleinik said. He believes that the parliament has an opportunity to finalize the bill and approve it.
Heads of the mission of the European Parliament Pat Cox and Aleksander Kwasniewski are attending a meeting of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament. The enactment of the law for the treatment of convicts abroad is one of the main conditions that the European Union set for Kiev so that an agreement on Ukraine’s associate membership in the European Union and on the creation a free trade zone with EU would be signed in Vilnius on November 28.
