Ukrainian Parliament

I'll start this thread for parliamentary discussions.

5 members of parliament were sworn in on the 15th. One got special treatment. Members of the opposition threw buckwheat at Viktor Pylypyshyn. A symbolic reason. To secure his votes for before elections he bought votes, particularly from retirees, by giving them buckwheat, rice, tea, and other goods. The opposition has returned to him his buckwheat.

Statement of the MFA Ukraine -23 April

The Government of Ukraine calls on all parties to the Geneva agreements to fulfill its obligations:

23.04.2014 | 00:36 (translated by Google)
Department of Information and Communication of the Secretariat of the CMU

Since the adoption of the Geneva agreements gone for five days. Immediately after reaching an agreement on initial steps to restore security in the eastern regions of Ukraine, the Government launched their good faith performance.
We appeal to those citizens who pidbureni Russian security services to defend their point of view chosen the path of violence and power grabs.
Ukrainian authorities are willing to listen to all the legitimate political demands of Ukrainian in the East and the West. And not only listen, but also to meet. We encourage fulfill the Geneva agreements concluded between Ukraine, Russia, USA and EU.
The Government has made concrete steps, which began its implementation of the agreements. Was suspended active phase of the antiterrorist operation.
The main task of the government is to protect civilians from armed gangs - in that format will work Ukrainian police and security forces. The Army has only one commandment - to protect the citizens of Ukraine, as required by law and the military oath. Unfortunately, civilians are victims of visitors touring criminal and terrorists who hide behind political slogans. The latest example - a horrible murder of two people whose bodies, mutilated torture, found today in Donetsk region. One of these victims - MP Gorlovskoy city council of the party "Fatherland."
The Government has approved and submitted to Parliament a draft law on exemption from responsibility of the riots that will pass and fired weapons seized administrative buildings. According to the Geneva agreements, such amnesty shall not apply only to those who have committed serious crimes, who killed and tortured people.
The government initiated a constitutional reform based on decentralization and empowerment of regions. Already held an expanded meeting of the parliamentary constitutional committee involving representatives of all political parties and regions. Resolution of a broad public discussion of future constitutional changes. This process has already begun, and we encourage him to join all those who want to change the current system of government in Ukraine. We offer a peaceful and legitimate way to do this: submit its proposals to change the Constitution. The government will hear them. But even before the introduction of constitutional amendments we are ready to hear the views of people in the region about what they see as worthy of these regions lead.
Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine and the Security Service of Ukraine continues to seize illegal arms in the population. The Government has consistently disarms all radical movements, organizations and sectors that are breaking the law. Already removed nearly 6000 small arms. On Independence Square and Khreschatyk absolutely free and safe atmosphere. There's no one persecuted on ethnic or linguistic grounds do not constitute a "black list". We invite you to come and see.
The government guarantees the protection and consolidation of special status for the Russian language. Territorial communities themselves determine the extent of the rights that they would give Russian or any other language.
The Government strongly condemns all manifestations of anti-Semitism, xenophobia and intolerance. In fact the anti-Semitic leaflets in Donetsk are under investigation of the Security Service.
Ruling coalition appealed to all political forces to sign a Memorandum of Understanding for the settlement of the situation in Eastern Ukraine. Government reminds all Ukrainian regions: You are legally elected representatives in Parliament. We appeal to disaffected in the East: MPs will make their work and defend your interests. They have to have all the legal possibilities.
We made our first steps forward. We are waiting for concrete actions by those who illegally keeps building and hostages.
Ukrainian party supports the leading role of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in promoting the immediate implementation of these measures. Representatives of the OSCE and the parties to the Geneva agreements on a daily basis being consulted at the highest levels, including the level of Prime Minister of Ukraine, which has received the head of the Special Observation Mission of the OSCE.
The Government also refers to the other Party to the Geneva agreements - of. Ukrainian party calls perform Russian share agreements. We call to withdraw troops from Ukrainian territory and draw attention to the importance of public support for disengagement from terrorism and separatism. We call on Russia to urge their supporters who commit illegal acts on the territory of Ukraine, to stop the violence and release the hostages and seized the building. We want to believe that the agreement with Russia worth the paper on them.

Interim Ukrainian Government Presents Tangible Achievements After 60 Days in Office - April 28, 2014

Kyiv, April 28, 2014. The signing of Ukraine-EU Association Agreement, removal of EU tariffs on imports of Ukrainian goods, streamlining of the licensing process in the agricultural sector – these were just some notable accomplishments of Ukraine’s interim government in the past 60 days. Other achievements included the reduction of taxes on medicine, the establishment of the National Guard, reform of the judicial sector, strengthening of anti-corruption policy, introduction of new decentralization policy, and negotiation of energy reform.

Remarkably, on March 21, 2014 Ukraine and the European Union signed an Association Agreement which had been in the works for the past three years but had not been finalized by the Yanukovych administration. In addition, Ukraine and the European Union have agreed to remove all tariffs applied on Ukrainian goods which are exported to Europe. This measure creates a better environment for the turnaround of goods and is expected to result in an extra economic benefit of about EUR 500 million, as reported Ukraine’s interim Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

Ukraine’s interim government has conducted financial aid negotiations with the US, Japan, the European Union, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. The total amount of the loan from helping states is estimated to reach USD 20 billion. The IMF is still in the process of deciding upon the loan amount. The new economic policy of the interim Ukrainian government has been focused on reducing government spending, lowering the number of public servants, shrinking the size of the state carport and lowering additional payments to governmental officials. Within the past 60 days the state budget has received more than UAH 16 billion in taxes, which is UAH 203.4 million more than during the same period last year.

To address the business and agricultural sectors Ukraine's Parliament adopted the law "On amendments to several legislative acts of Ukraine to reduce the number of permit documents”. This policy aims to simplify the licensing process and establishes transparent and fair rules for business operations, and aims to improve the investment climate in agricultural sector.

Reforms in human rights protection and the judicial sector are emphasized in the new law “On restoring trust in the court system of Ukraine”. This law introduces the means and mechanisms for enabling lustration of judges in Ukraine. The government of Ukraine has unanimously voted in favor of establishing of a Special Commission within the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine which would conduct monitoring missions to ensure that human rights of all prisoners and detained persons are ensured in all respective institutions.

The Ukrainian Parliament has also adopted laws for starting the process of eliminating the need to receive EU visas for Ukrainian citizens. Those include laws on “Anti corruption policy strengthening”, “Public procurement”, amendments to the Customs and Tax Codes on tax reduction for medicine (from 20 percent to 7 percent), as well as laws on the EU visa liberalization system.

The social security and education systems have been upgraded with a new social protection program for refugees and a new law on “Higher Education”. The new law provides universities with more autonomy and more advanced mechanisms for preventing corruption.

A gradual cancellation of subsidies, which has a great impact on Ukrainian budget, has been one of the IMF’s conditions for providing the next tranche of loans and for improving the gas market sector. Therefore Ukraine’s newly-introduced energy reform is designed to gradually increase gas tariffs for the households. Additionally, Ukraine and Poland have agreed on simplifying the reverse supply of natural gas. Ukraine is also involved in ongoing negotiations with the U.S., the EU and other countries on how to improve its energy efficiency.

The government presented a new concept of decentralization of the regions and local authorities in the bill "On the cooperation of local communities” and agreed with the EU about cooperation at all stages of local government reform and the introduction of the effective regional policy.

The situation in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine forced the Ukrainian government to start reforming the military sector. In light of the military threat initiated by the Russian Federation at Ukraine’s eastern border, Ukraine’s government has decided to reform its military sector, increase its budget, open donation accounts and establish a National Guard.

The current government, led by the interim Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk was appointed by the Ukrainian Parliament on February 27, 2014, after the dramatic Euromaidan events that drove ex-President Viktor Yanukovych from office. Since then, Ukraine's interim government has been working intently to adopt new political and economic reforms aimed at European integration.

289 against corruption. What about the rest?
Individual voting for the bill no. 4556

Alla Dubrovyk May 15, 2014
Ukrainian parliament of this convocation is not so hopeless. They have started to work at last. Whether it has happened as a result of the pressure of the public (initiative “Reanimation Reform Package”), or it was under the onslaught of the Kremlin, but the MPs are implementing really important legislative changes in the country in record short terms. So, on May 13, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a number of legislative decisions, in particular the ones that had not been supported by the majority before.

In particular, it is the bill no. 4556 “On amending certain legislative acts of Ukraine in the sphere of anti-corruption policy which are connected with the plan of action on liberalization of visa regime for Ukraine by the European Union.” This law, which was supported by majority in the VRU on May 13, essentially reinforces the front of the corruption fighters. From now on all violations connected with corruption, both in governmental, and private sectors, will be punished by prison terms (before that bribers faced conditional punishments – firing from the post at maximum). According to the bill no.4556 not only the one who demands a bribe will be prosecuted, but also the one who offers or gives (previously there was no punishment for giving a bribe). Besides, the draft law essentially broadens the possibilities of confiscation of criminal incomes from bribery and regulates the external control and verification of the data in declarations on property, incomes, and expenditures. For giving false information in declaration an official will face both administrative and disciplinary punishment.
