KIEV, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. A five-pointed star, a symbol of the former Soviet Union, has been cut off from the spire of the building which houses the Ukrainian Rada, Vice-speaker Ruslan Koshulynskiy said in the lobbies of the Ukrainian parliament.
The star was removed without the consent of the parliament's leadership, the vice-speaker said.
In the end of 2013, MP Oleksandr Brygynets from the Batkivshchyna faction of the Ukrainian Rada, appealed to Speaker Volodymyr Rybak, asking to have the Soviet star removed from the Rada's spire.
The leaders of the Ukrainian parliament declared then that the star might be dismantled only after the decision was coordinated by the respective bodies in charge.
