Meanwhile, the date of Volodymyr Zelensky's inauguration is still unknown, as the Parliament has not yet approved it; according to various bills offered for the Parliament's consideration, it could be May 19, May 20 or June 3. 

Ex-head of the authority Stanislav Shevchuk claimed he would appeal against this decision and the Court's actions, which he described as 'constitutional coup.'
