KIEV, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament has left for winter recess. The next plenary meeting will take place on January 14, 2014, Speaker Vladimir Rybak said on Friday.
The deputies are expected to consider and adopt the 2014 state draft budget early next year. Ukraine’s Chief Prosecutor Viktor Pshonka made a speech in parliament on Friday. He admitted that policemen from the Berkut special unit overused their powers when dispersing pro-European rallies in central Kiev on the night to November 30. The chief prosecutor told the opposition candidates who demanded his resignation that it was up to the president and parliament to decide on the chief prosecutor’s future.
“It is necessary to act according to the law,” Pshonka emphasized.
