"Ten minutes before the general testing was supposed to start, when 450 Verkhovna Rada employees were ready to enter the session hall and conduct this testing, 12 SBU and SBI officers went into the parliament's premises without an invitation, without an official warning, without a court order," he said at a briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

"They came into the computer center and told that investigative measures were being taken, blocked the work of the computer center and instructed the security officers not to let anybody of the parliament's staff enter the session hall," Parubiy said.

He expressed his conviction that was a gross interference in the work of the parliament.

At the same time, the SBU confirmed that its officers together with the SBI were conducting investigative actions in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
