No separate Committee on Donbas should be created in Rada, leading party says
Leader of the Servant of the People Party, chairman of the Preparatory Deputy Group Dmytro Razumkov says a separate parliamentary committee should not be created solely for dealing with Donbas settlement issues.
Answering a doorstep question ahead of the meeting regarding proposals to create an additional parliamentary committee on Donbas settlement, Razumkov said: "These questions were also voiced in our proposals. But this is not a separate committee – this is a committee that is responsible for some other issues related to national minorities and human rights," according to an UNIAN correspondent.
When asked about setting up separate committee on veterans, Razumkov replied the issue was set to be discussed at the meeting of Conciliation Group of MPs.
At the same time, member of the Servant of the People Ruslan Stefanchuk added the committee tasked with Donbas matters should also should also address issues of Crimea, combined with general human rights.
"After all, it's human rights that are being violated" in the occupied territories, Stefanchuk stressed.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Opposition Platform – For Life Party announced the need to create a parliamentary committee on Donbas settlement.
