KIEV, December 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The opposition will be blocking the work of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, as long as Nikolai Azarov’s incumbent government resigns, chairman of the Batkivshchyna faction Arseny Yatsenyuk told a press briefing here on Wednesday.
“We have put it clearly that the parliament should dismiss the government. Yesterday (on Tuesday) the Party of Regions and the Communists did not vote for this decision, and, so, as long as the government is dismissed, the parliament will not work,” he noted.
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.
