Plenary evening is over

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

Evening plenary meeting of the Parliament is on.

The Presiding Officer set out the list of issues to be discussed during the session.

Soboliev to be ousted from power

The matter on ‘beheading’ the Committee on Corruption Prevention and Counteraction is under review at present. The committee head, Ehor Soboliev, has supposedly been enforced to abandon his office against the grain.

By 256 hands the Committee on Corruption Prevention and Counteraction Head Ehor Soboliev has been dismissed from his committee position for poor performance. The relevant decision under the bill No.7368 has just been taken by the House.

Members of parliament go on considering extension of freezing for agricultural lands sales.  


The body of today’s work of the House:


Ban on lands transfer extended

7350 – Taken was the bill No.7350 on amendments to the Ukrainian Land Code’s transition provisions concerning extension of ban on transfer (purchase and sale) of agricultural lands. The new term is extended to 1 January 2019 at least.  

President’s quarter fist over NEURC (NKREPK) if failed

7342-1 – Taken was the bill No.7342-1 on amendments to the law of Ukraine on the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission (NEURC) regarding empowering the President of Ukraine to ensure its steady performance. The law runs until the Regulator’s bench is properly manned or in case of its incompetence, the President is only entitled to fill up the vacancies till the Regulator members, pickable at an open competition, are appointed – but no longer than for three months.

No more overseas wings after 2021

7280 – Taken was the bill No.7280 on amendments to the law of Ukraine on promotion to aircraft construction and the Tax Code of Ukraine  regarding granting Ukrainian air companies a rebound period for switching from foreign- to home-made crafts. The rebound’s deadline is set at 1 January 2021.

Public purchasers to prefer domestics

7206 – Taken on the first reading was the draft law No.7206 “Buy Ukrainian – pay to Ukrainians” sending amendments to certain laws of Ukraine on promotion to industrial production development, and small and medium-sized businesses (SMB).  The bill is meant to streamline public purchases through a set of technical innovations.

Dough for lawmakers

7172 – Taken was a draft resolution No.7172 on financial provision for parliamentarians’ activities. The rate of pay (including salary increments) was set at the ministers’ level given the living wage as of the start of a calendar year. The aides’ remuneration was also clarified.

Charity begins at home

7345 – Taken was the bill No.7345 on amendments to the Ukrainian Budget Code’s transition provisions. The new changes will allow the Cabinet, as an exception, in the ensuing budgetary periods to independently re-decide how to use funds to be allocated for television and radio broadcasting companies located in Crimea and Sevastopol.

Thirty Spartans at Parliament

6596 – Taken was the ordinance No.6596 promoting public service at the Parliament’s administration through new probation programmes and appropriate training allowances (scholarship) established. From 1 January 2018, there shall start thirty full day scholarships for the above trainees, payable monthly at the rate of double living wage set for able-bodied citizens as of the start of the calendar year of disbursement.  The Cabinet is to be responsible for funding these scholarships.

Analog elongated for ATO, Crimea and near

6565 – Taken was the bill No.6565 on amendments to certain laws of Ukraine on temporary broadcasting permits for the ATO zone and the border areas. The bill protracts analog broadcasting throughout the areas with “a specific broadcasting regime” – regions neighbouring the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine (Crimea and Sevastopol), certain areas in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, and the border regions which are most exposed to the aggressor’s propaganda. Also, the law is to quicken the broadcast licensing procedure for the ATO period and one year thereafter.

Taxes Up!

6776-d – Taken was the bill No.6776-d on amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine to ensure balancing 2018 revenue. The bill provides for tax rate ‘up-justments’ set in absolute value: environmental tax subject to consumer price index by 11.2%, no-extraction subsoil use rental payments, special water use and special forest use rentals subject to industrial producer price  index increased by 16.8%. The law provides for gradual, until 2025, rise of specific rates for tobacco excise tax and minimum excise tax liability for tobacco excise tax. The Ukrainian Tax Code’s mandatory provision requiring annual submission of an absolute-value tax rise bill by the Cabinet has been remodelled into ‘if-required’ regime.

A squiz at Parliament’s pocket

7380 – Taken was the ordinance under No.7380 on the Parliament’s 2018 main supply estimate. The paper’s drafter was the Parliament’s Administration as the key expense controller. Taken into consideration, there were the Budget Code of Ukraine based on the figures from the State Budget of Ukraine for 2018, and other relevant regulations.

The Presiding Officer closed the meeting.
