He also pointed out that the procedure of parliament's voting for the arrest of Mosiichuk was carried out properly from a legal point of view and the regulations have not been violated. "The chairman raised the issue of changing the voting procedure to make the decision today. It was supported. This is called an ad-hoc change in the schedule meaning a one-time change in the decision-making procedure," Lutsenko said.

At the same time, according to Censor.NET correspondent, the Radical Party faction is holding a meeting behind closed doors in the hall on the first floor of the building of the parliament. MP Mosiichuk accused of corruption is also there.

The evidence of commission of these crimes has been collected during the investigation," Shokin stated in the Verkhovna Rada.
