“So far we haven’t been attracted. I haven’t seen such a bill, and we are probably all waiting for the president to meet in the “Normandy format ”on December 9. I think that on December 10 or maximum of 11 there will be some kind of decision, and including for parliament. So far we are not working on such a bill," - Zavitnevich said.

As we reported before, the bill on the Security Service of Ukraine currently exists in several versions of the Security Service of Ukraine and the President’s office, as well as a specialized parliamentary committee.  Parliament may not have time to adopt the document before the end of the year.
