Kiev, July 12. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Opposition Bloc has urged officials in the Verkhovna Rada to pass a set of laws to resolve the Donbass conflict, faction leader Yuri Boyko proclaimed in a speech before parliament on Tuesday.
"We demand that crucial laws be passed, notably the implementation of the Minsk agreements and a resolution to the Donbass crisis," he stated without specifying the documents proposed for ratification.
According to Boyko, the parliament needs to approve bills that would make it possible to raise social standards, pensions and wages. "Over the two past years, people have found themselves below the poverty line, facing soaring prices on housing and utility bills," he said.
Boyko again called on parliament to dissolve itself due to the Verkhovna Rada’s indecisiveness. "Our faction is ready to hand over our mandates. I hope there are another 120 people who are willing to give up their seats in parliament so that a new responsible Rada is elected," Boyko said.
