KIEV, December 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian Parliamentary Speaker Vladimir Rybak has closed a plenary meeting, as its work was blocked by the opposition. “We will meet tomorrow (on Thursday),” Rybak said.
On Wednesday, the parliament planned to debate a bill introducing a moratorium on shutdown and reorganization of medical institutions, a bill setting a penalty fee in case of untimely payments of salaries, pensions and scholarships. Meanwhile, the parliament intends to facilitate the procedure of state registration of small business and debate a bill eliminating private monopolies.
However, the deputies from the opposition stated the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, will not work on Wednesday. “We keep blocking it. It is senseless to work,” leader of the Batkivshchyna faction Arseny Yatsenyuk said. He demanded again Nikolai Azarov’s government should resign and release from custody the participants of the protest rallies. “Otherwise, the Verkhovna Rada will not work,” Yatsenyuk 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.
