As reported by Censor.NET citing Yevropeiska Pravda, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Hroisman just moved on to other issues on the agenda and subsequently closed the session. A number of bills on migration and asylum as well as amendments to the law on the State Bureau of Investigation were neither considered.
At the same time, during the day, seven other "visa-free package" bills were adopted (though not at the first attempt). Some bills had to be voted several times. Four of them were passed only in the first reading. In the afternoon, MPs supported in the second reading and in whole two laws introducing state financing of political parties (No. 2138 and No. 2123), as well as in the first reading - the bill No. 2330 on labor migration.
Earlier, government officials repeatedly stressed that the "visa-free package" should be adopted as quickly as possible, as otherwise there is a high risk that in December, the EU will announce Ukraine's unpreparedness for the visa-free regime.
