On February 20, Ukrainian MPs considered more than a thousand amendments to the land market law that their colleagues passed to the Parliament. The bill undergoes a second reading.
Lawmakers have been considering the amendments for the second plenary week in a row; over the first week, the MPs considered 216. The general number of considered amendments currently makes 1,049 of 4,018.
The MPs also should consider a presidential bill that lets foreign armed forces into Ukraine for multinational military drills in 2020 and amendments to the bill "On the national security of Ukraine"; the latter will be considered in the second reading. The lawmakers also will look into the draft law on preventing corruption. However, the procedure still won't let them do so.
Earlier, Davyd Arakhamia, chairman of the Servant of the People’s parliamentary faction claimed that the final vote on the land market bill will take place in April 2020. "If we proceed at such pace, regardless of how many session weeks we have... it will happen in April, maybe April 16-17", he said.
