Chair of Batkivshchyna Party Yulia Tymoshenko ripped the microphone out of hands of Chair of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov, as MP from the Servant of the People Oleksandr Kachura reported on Telegram.
“First blood in the Verkhovna Rada. Yulia Volodymyrivna cut her finger ripping the mike out,” Kachura wrote.
As we reported, the Verkhovna Rada plans to consider a bill on the land market in the second reading on February 6. MPs from the "Opposition Platform - For Life" oppositional party blocked the tribune of Ukraine's parliament to prevent the voting for the bill.
Moreover, the protest of farmers who want not to allow the adoption of the law on the land market takes place near the Verkhovna Rada. Initially, the protesters demanded to postpone the law and hold the referendum and adopt the norms, which provide the state and local self-government bodies to buy the shares. Now, they urge the MPs to extend the moratorium.
On November 13, 2019, Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine supported the committee bill on the opening of the agricultural land market № 2178-10 as a basis.
On December 28, 2019, the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Agrarian and Land Policy completed the consideration of all amendments to the draft law on the land market and recommended that MPs adopt it in the second reading.
