Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine will hold an extraordinary plenary session today, on April 30. The corresponding order was signed by Parliament Speaker Dmytro Razumkov, the press service of Verkhovna Rada reports.
"The Chairman of Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov convenes an extraordinary plenary session of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine at 13:30 on April 30 upon the request of 159 MPs," the message reads.
Bills on the accession of Ukraine to the Inter-American Convention on the Execution of Criminal Punishments abroad and on the accession to the Hague Convention on the Protection of Cultural Property are on the parliament’s agenda. In addition, Verkhovna Rada intends to consider several ratifications.
It also intends to reduce the pledge for local elections.
As we reported earlier, Georgian politicians ask Ukraine to take their opinion into account when considering the appointment of Mikheil Saakashvili as Vice Prime Minister.
"I know Saakashili very close because I was in the parliament in 2003, but not in the ruling party, but the opposition. When Saakashvili decided to take my property from me, as he did with the other people in Georgia, I criticized him in the open, which is why they beat me up in downtown Tbilisi. The party of President Zelensky is called Servant of the People, and my request is to consider the opinion of the Georgian people. He's a criminal in Georgia, and he cannot be elected for such position," Valeri Gelashvili, the MP who represents Georgian Dream faction, said.
