The language law signed by the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andrew Parubiy on May 14 was not fully disclosed and MPs therefore accused the head of parliament of fraud. This was reported by MP Mikhail Papiev from the pulpit of parliament on May 15, as the "Country" correspondent reports.
"Yesterday the head of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine signed something with such things, saying that he has signed the law of Ukraine" about ensuring the functioning of the Ukrainian language as a state language. "But you know, the text of the law is nowhere to be found," Papiyev said.
According to him, the people's representatives have already appealed to the Constitutional Court, they must also appeal to the General Prosecutor regarding the actions of the head of the Verkhovna Rada, which may contain signs of fraud.
"The tables that were distributed, there was no version of the commission at all, then the delegates voted for something, and then it was pasted together and signed by the head of the Verkhovna Rada." Mr. Paruby, what did you sign yesterday? "Display the text! This law prohibits the use of Russian, Romanian, languages in the Crimean Tatars. Where is the conclusion of the Venice Commission? No, he is working on fraud and I am sure the new public prosecutor will evaluate these actions, "Papiyev said.
As reported, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law on language on April 25 in second reading and in general. 278 MPs from BPP, Volksfront, Radicals Lyashko, Zelfhulp and BYuT voted. The parliamentarians considered the changes to the document in plenary sessions for almost two months – from 28 February.
Parubiy could not sign the document before the May holidays due to 4 motions for resolutions on the repeal of the law.
However, on May 14, the Rada was not allowed to adopt resolutions on the repeal of the law on total Ukraineization. President of Parliament Andrei Parubiy signed a language law during the plenary session.
