Journalists also decided not to stand out from the crowd and put on their vyshyvankas, Censor.NET reports.
The only faction that unanimously ignored this initiative was the Opposition Bloc.
As Censor.NET correspondent reported, the prices of deputies' vyshyvankas ranged from 300 to 30,000 hryvnia.
People's Front faction leader Maksym Burbak congratulated all on the Vyshyvanka Day and admitted he was very pleased that this tradition was born in his native Chernivtsi. According to him, the students introduced this tradition 10 years ago. He also said an appeal to President Petro Poroshenko is being prepared, which is intended to make the Vyshyvanka Day a state holiday.
Non-affiliated MP Viktor Chumak said he had bought his vyshyvanka in his native Khmelnytskyi region. The MP claims that a black embroidery is in fact festive rather than mourning garment as some people believe. According to him, it is more expensive.
