Draft law on foundations of state policy of transition period requires additional discussion – Razumkov

KYIV. Sept 15 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The government bill on the fundamentals of the state policy of the transition period requires additional discussions, taking into account the negotiations in the Minsk and Normandy formats, in order to maintain support for Ukraine from the EU and the United States, said Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Dmytro Razumkov.

"Here the issue will need to be worked out in more detail. In order not to inadvertently create some zones of turbulence, the support for Ukraine, which exists at the level of the European Union, the United States, has been preserved. Because we know that the sanctions are tied to ‘Minsk.’ I talked about this with my colleagues participating in Minsk, the Normandy format," Razumkov said in an exclusive interview with Interfax-Ukraine.

He recalled that the bill is still in a specialized committee [the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Human Rights, De-occupation and Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories].

"It has not yet been proposed for consideration in the session hall. There are different norms, including those that will need to be discussed additionally. But I am not ready to answer now when this happens," the speaker noted.
