An interval announced in the VR

A 30 minutes interval was announced at the plenary session of the Verkhovna Rada. According to an UNIAN correspondent, the factions of the BYUT and OU-PSD demanded to study the issue of replacing the leaders of the State Property Fund of Ukraine today.

After that, the Party of Regions faction asked to announce an interval 30 minutes. But Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk said that it is unreasonable because it is necessary to invite head of the SPFU Valentyna Semenyuk-Samsonenko to report about the work of the Fund.

After the interval was announced, parliament members from the Party of Regions blocked the rostrum of parliament. Chairman of the BYuT faction Ivan Kyrylenko and some BYuT MPs went to the governmental box.
