MPs could not make any compromise

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has set up two ad hoc commissions to probe into the alleged “drunken incident” that occurred to Interior Minister of Ukraine Yuri Lutsneko in the Frankfurt airport (Germany) on May 4.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, 214 MPs out of 442, registered in the session hall, voted for this.

The commissions are to provide the Ukrainian society with reliable information about the incident. One of the commissions is headed by BYuT lawmaker Roman Zabzalyuk, and the other commission is headed by Party of Regions MP Nestor Shufrych.

The parliament formed two commissions as it could not decide who will head the commission. Verkhovna Rada Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn called on lawmakers to make a compromise, but none of the sides agreed.
