“Mr. Zelensky I inform you that you have no right anymore to veto the law on the temporary investigation commissions. You can only sign it now. If it is vetoed, it will be a violation of the law. This law is adopted due to the demand of the Constitution of Ukraine; it creates the real parliamentary control in Ukraine and what is important, it clearly establishes and describes the procedure and parliamentary control of the temporary investigation commissions and the impeachment of the president,” Parubiy said.
