Zelensky reacts to petition to revoke parliamentary mandates of pro-Russian MPs
The response to the petition was published on the president’s website, Ukrinform reports.
"Taking this into account, I turned to the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, R. Stefanchuk, with a request to process the proposals set out in the electronic petition and to inform me of the results," the president wrote.
He also noted that the regulations of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine stipulate that the conciliation council of parliamentary factions (deputy groups) considers and adopts proposals, including those on the schedule of plenary meetings and weekly agenda. It passes the relevant decisions by voting.
