The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence considered Bill №5599 with violations and “under the seal of secrecy”, as Parliament Speaker Dmytro Razumkov states during the Conciliation Council.
“We had an unpleasant situation at the end of last week. I mean the bill №5599. On September 17 the committee took place, the committee considered it, but did not invite the authors of the edits or provide the tables. Somehow it happened under the guise of great secrecy. I appeal to the staff, to the management of the staff: please find out how the secretariat worked. When the chairman of the committee will speak, I would like him to also provide information on how we are considering bills, which are really an important issue for society, for the Verkhovna Rada, and for the future of our state, "Razumkov said.
Following the incident, the conciliation council put an anti-oligarchic package of bills on the parliament's agenda this week. The relevant decision was made today.
Servant of the People, For the Future and Trust political parties voted in favor.
Thus, bills №5599 and №5600 will be considered this week.
As it was reported earlier, the Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence recommended that the Verkhovna Rada adopt in the second reading and in general Bill №5599 on the prevention of threats to national security related to the excessive influence of persons of significant economic or political importance in public life (oligarchs).
