 Rada Refused to Release Tymoshenko and Lutsenko

Pro-government majority refused to support the review of the Amnesty Law which provides for the release of political prisoners Yulia Tymoshenko and Yuriy Lutsenko.

The United opposition press service reports that when the speaker Lytvyn wanted to vote on the issue, the leader of the Party of Regions Oleksandr Yefremov said that the current session of Parliament is coming to an end, and the deputies will not have time to consider it.

He proposed to revert to the law later.

Chairman of the BYuT-Batkivschyna faction Andriy Kozhemyakin insisted that the bill was discussed today. In addition, the chairman of the faction asked the speaker to explain why the deputies were given the schedule for the entire week, and the leaders of the Party of Regions say that the next session will take place on 20 November. Kozhemyakin noted that a matter of reducing the current plenary week was not raised at the conciliatory council and accused the Verkhovna Rada of gross violation of the Regulations.
