KIEV, March 12. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada, or national parliament, is drifting further away from reality, a deputy parliament speaker said on Sunday.
"In the recent time, Rada’s plenary sessions, its work have been very sad. The parliament is drifting further away in its activities from the reality we live in," Oksana Syroyed said in an interview with 112.Ukraina television channel.
Syroyev, who represents the Samopomoshch (Self-assistance) faction, described the parliament’s agenda as "hollow." "I doubt that Ukrainians feel the results of Rada voting in any way. There are too many hollow speeches and conversations," she said, adding that the two years of Rada’s work have yielded "zero comprehensive decisions concerning security and defense."
She said that among the most awaited decisions the parliament is to take is a law on "occupied territories."
On March 14, the Verkhovna Rada resumes plenary sessions after a break taken on Fberuary 24. On Monday, March 13, Rada’s leaders will meet with the faction leaders to agree the agenda.
