KIEV, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. A state of emergency in Ukraine would not be on the agenda of an extraordinary parliamentary session on January 28, speaker Vladimir Rybak told Rada Television on Friday
“This issue is not on the agenda. Deputies will discuss the only issue - a peaceful settlement of the political crisis in Ukraine,” the speaker said. “Politicians must do all to see the crisis settled through political methods. The authorities must heed the opposition, while the opposition must heed the authorities,” Rybak said.
He also said in a televised interview that parliamentarians were expected to come up with offers on priority issues to be considered at a regular session that begins on February 4.
At a meeting with the speaker on Thursday, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich ordered an extraordinary session of the parliament, whose deputies are having winter recess.
