BYuT lawmakers keep on blocking the rostrum

Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Speaker Arseniy Yatseniuk opened the morning plenary session of parliament.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, the Speaker had to enter the chamber of parliament not through the door to presidium, but through the entrance for lawmakers.

A.Yatseniuk tried to occupy his workplace, but BYuT lawmakers hampered him. He was forced to stand near the rostrum, where he proposed lawmakers to register. 256 lawmakers registered as present in the session hall.

A.Yatseniuk also pointed out that he cannot normally control the work of parliament, and proposed lawmakers to break up, though he did not close the plenary session.
