Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Lytvyn called upon Ukrainian politicians to carry out a collective reading of story of Vasiliy Shukshyn “Think”.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said this at the news conference in Donetsk today, commenting the present political situation in Ukraine.

“It is impossible to look calmly at what is happening in the country. There is one of the stories of V. Shukshyn – “Think”, when a chairman of a collective farm comes home, lies down and thinks, how people will estimate him, what people will say about him at his funeral, and he asks himself – what he could not do…”, said V. Lytvyn.
