Parliament to propose government lift weekend lockdown

Deputy Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Olena Kondratiuk has registered in parliament the draft resolution No. 4381 proposing that the government lift the weekend lockdown.

According to an Ukrinform correspondent, the politician stated this at a meeting of the parliament's conciliatory council.

"Today, under my leadership and the leadership of all factions and groups, a special resolution, No. 4381, was registered. It concerns the recommendation to lift the government's weekend lockdown," Kondratiuk said.

At the same time, the politician called on local authorities and self-government agencies to take a responsible approach to the introduction of lockdown measures, because "the very confrontation between the center and the regions is absolutely destructive for the state."
