KIEV, July 23. /ITAR-TASS/. The faction of the Ukrainian Communist Party in Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada (parliament) will be disbanded on Thursday, parliament speaker Oleksandr Turchynov said at a plenary meeting on Wednesday.
“The Ukrainian president yesterday signed a bill into law on changing the rules of procedure in the Verkhovna Rada. Tomorrow, it will be officially published, which means it will come into effect. Tomorrow, the Communist faction in the parliament will be disbanded,” Turchynov said.
On Tuesday, the Rada adopted amendments to the rules of procedure that allow disbanding the Communist Party faction. The decision was supported at the fourth attempt and with violation of the same rules of procedure by 232 lawmakers with the required minimum of 226 votes.
On Wednesday, there was a fistfight in Ukraine’s parliament between members of the Communist Party and MPs of the nationalist party Svoboda (Freedom). Turchynov had to announce a 15-minute break. “We’ll have to put up with this (Communist) faction just for a day," the parliament speaker said.
