On which PR faction insisted...

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine refused to adopt in the second reading and the draft law in a whole on introducing amendments into the state budget for 2009 (on increasing of the living wage and the minimal salary).

According to an UNIAN correspondent, 200 out of 385 lawmakers registered in the session hall voted for the draft law, on which the Party of Regions faction insisted.

Immediately after that the Party of Regions faction blocked the rostrum and presidium of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

Now near the rostrum there are about 20 lawmakers from the Party of Regions, about 10 lawmakers are in the governmental box; doors and presidium of the Verkhovna Rada are blocked with chairs.
