KIEV, December 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian opposition intends to disrupt a plenary meeting of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, on Wednesday. Parliamentary Speaker Vladimir Rybak did not open a plenary meeting yet, the deputies from the opposition faction Batkivshchyna had blocked the rostrum of the Ukrainian supreme legislature already since Wednesday morning. “We will block the work of the parliament, there is no one to have talks with there now,” deputy chairman of the Batkivshchyna faction Aleksander Turchinov stated.
Leader of the Batkivshchyna faction Arseny Yatsenyuk added, “The blockade of the parliament is caused by an unjust trial against the supporters of European integration.”
Meanwhile, representatives of the faction Svoboda (freedom) also stated that “not a single important bill is on the agenda today, therefore, it is senseless to hold a plenary meeting.” “We are going to the protesters in the street now,” members of the faction said.
On Tuesday, the Shevchenkovsky district court in Kiev ruled to arrest nine active participants of the disorders at the Ukrainian presidential staff building. All of them are accused under Article 294 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code for participation in staging massive disorders. The Kiev police have earlier stated about the launch of the investigation of 11 criminal cases over massive disorders on December 1 and the attempts to capture the administrative buildings in Kiev.
