KIEV, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. At an extraordinary session on January 28, the Ukrainian parliament will look into the situation in the country and ways to settle the political crisis peacefully, the press service of the Ukrainian parliament quoted Speaker Vladimir Rybak as saying.
Focusing on opposition demands to dismiss the government, Rybak said the issue should be considered by a conciliation board “in line with the law”, and this could be done only starting from February 4.
As for opposition demands for an early election of the president, the parliament and local self-governments, Rybak said it necessitated amendments to the election legislation.
The laws aimed to curb public protests have fuelled tensions in the country following mass riots over the government’s backtrack on the EU association deal.
