KIEV, December 01, (ITAR-TAS)/. Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) must demand the parliament report about the forcible dispersal of a rally in Kiev’s Maidan Nezalezhnosti, or Independence Square, overnight to Saturday and call the government responsible for that, chairman of the parliamentary national security committee Vladimir Litvin said on Sunday.
Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov and President Viktor Yanukovich “have publicly condemned the brutal actions of law enforcers, but they did not demonstrate such a tough reaction towards officials,” he said. “To wait for the results of an investigation organized by the prosecutor general’s office means only to fan tensions. In the current situation, it is better to overreact than to thread on the heels.”
“Much will depend on the Verkhovna Rada at this critical moment,” the press service quotes him as saying. “It must gather immediately to hear the government’s report about the situation over the dispersal of the rally, about the government’s actions concerning the preparations of the Association Agreement with the European Union and about the results of the Vilnius [Eastern Partnership] summit, and about the general economic situation in the country. And after this, to offer a number of personnel solutions and look at the responsibility of the Ukrainian cabinet.”
He said the calls to block the work of all power institutions and hold early presidential and parliamentary elections concurrently were unacceptable.
