"Important bills, important resolutions. But I want to emphasize that tomorrow will be a very important day. Decentralization and deregulation as well as a number of other important issues are scheduled for consideration," the Rada speaker said, calling on MPs to work as actively as possible in the committees.

Today, due to the lack of votes, deputies decided to postpone consideration of the draft resolution No. 4735 on appeal to the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress to legislate sanctions against Russia until the full restoration of Ukraine's sovereignty over the Crimean peninsula and approval of the resolution on parliamentary hearings on the strategy "Reintegration of Crimea in Ukraine."

Parubii also reported that Tetiana Rychkova and Yurii Odarchenko, previously elected at the by-elections to the parliament, have become members of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc and Batkivshchyna factions respectively.
