Draft law No. 1210 that offers a rapid increase in the rent for iron ore production in Ukraine should be recalled from the Parliament. Oleksandr Kalenkov, the president of Ukrmetalurgprom company said so.

"It is an odious and toxic draft law. We all said this there's no use passing it in the first reading because this draft law's content would be changed for 60 percent", he said.

"Later, there will be thousands of amendments there. It will be legislative spam. Recall this bill and offer a normal one, which would include the amendments offered by the business representatives", Kalenkov concluded.
