Ukraine's Parliament, the Verkhovna Rada can return to the usual working mode at about May 20. Davyd Arakhamia, the head of parliamentary faction of Servant of the People party said so in a commentary for 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"We decided we'd gather legal initiative from all factions, as lomng as they consider them urgent. We would convene an extra parliamentary session and vote for all these laws. If the President defines some other draft laws that he considers urgent, we'll also vote for other draft laws - in addition to this extraordinary session", he said.

The MP assumed if the Parliament works in such mode for another two or three weeks, it would be able to return to the session hall at about May 20. That, however, would depend on the dynamics of the spread of coronavirus, Arakhamia said.

The head of the government was among the officials present at the conference gathered and led by the President. Shmygal addressed the build-up of the disease in the country.

"We've got to specify and tell the people when and what will be opened [after the lockdown is over], what is the clear plan of the government's actions. The peak of morbidity is expected in early May. People should understand if they can take a walk in the park, when the barbershops, lawyer offices, and other kinds of business will resume working. I know that the Olympians need to practice to stay in shape. All people should have a clear vision of how and when the lockdown may soften", the Prime Minister said.
