The Verkhovna Rada plans to consider a number of ratifications, condemn the weapons tests by North Korea and amend the Criminal Code to protect children from sexual abuse. This was stated in the agenda for February 7, published on the parliament's website.
Firstly, the deputies will consider ratifying the trade agreement and the treaty on mutual legal assistance in criminal matters with Thailand, as well as an agreement on mutual protection of the classified information with Moldova and Portugal.
Verkhovna Rada intends to condemn the tests of mass destruction weapons conducted by the DPRK.
There are two draft laws in the first reading on the agenda – on the guarantees to improve the sports skills of young people and changes in the legislation on the order of the child's departure from Ukraine.
In addition, the deputies will consider a draft resolution cancelling the adoption of a bill on privatization of state enterprises.
People's Deputies plan to consider in the first reading a bill on the allocation of an early retirement pension for the relatives of those who died in the Revolution of Dignity.
The only bill in the second reading for today is changes to the Criminal Code of Ukraine on the protection of children from sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.
In the second half of the day, the deputies will work in committees, factions and groups.
As it was reported earlier Verkhovna Rada adopted as a whole the bill on the state policy aiming to secure sovereignty of Ukraine over the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
During the debates, the deputies discussed whether to mention Crimea and Sevastopol in the headline of the bill, but this initiative did not gain sufficient support.
At the same time, the preamble states about the occupation of Crimea and Sevastopol. In particular, the start of the temporary occupation of Crimea on February 20, 2014 is indirectly admitted to be the date of the start of Crimea’s occupation, with reference to another law.
