KIEV, May 11. /TASS/. Members of the Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada from the Radical Party will block the rostrum of the parliament until a special commission is set up to investigate the offshore scandals involving the country’s high-ranking officials, Radical Party leader Oleg Lyashko said before the Verkhovna Rada meeting on Wednesday.

"We will block the rostrum. We will demand that a special commission is created to investigate the offshore scandals involving the country’s high-ranking officials, including President Petro Poroshenko," Lyashko said. "These people, including the president, must return the money to the country," he added.

According to the parliamentarian, his faction also insists on cancelling an increase in gas prices. "Who will pay 7,000 hryvnia (about $270) per 1,000 cubic meters - a teacher, a doctor, a dairy woman? They even do not have such wages," Lyashko said.
