First Vice Speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament Ruslan Stefanchuk claimed there are reasons to disband the Verkhovna Rada. He said so in an interview for Ukrainska Pravda outlet.

"If we're talking about legal reasons - and you know that the Constitution of Ukraine includes certain reasons for the new disbanding of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine - as of today, there is such a reason, I guess", Stefanchuk said.

According to him, in December 2020-January 2021, MPs of the Verkhovna Rada have not gathered in session hall for more than 30 days.

"It's a formal reason for the dismissal. But I'm not sure whether the President will use this right because I can only quote what the president said - the Verkhovna Rada will keep working as long as its work is effective and aiming to complete the president's program", the official added.

Recently, Ukrainian lawmakers supported the draft law No.5246 about the implementation of the so-called "court in smartphone". 272 MPs voted for the bill.

The draft law offers creation of information and telecommunication system of pre-trial investigation. It is supposed to collect, store, process and handling of materials and information in criminal cases.

Participants of the trial procedure will be able to use the system to protect their rights, authorities and interests.

Materials of pre-trial investigation in this system will be passed in the digital form. However, under the decision of a judge, inquiry officer, prosecutor's office, investigating judge or the court itself, they can be provided in the paper form.
