Victor Yushchenko insists that it will be illegal to make the controversial law on the cabinet of ministers, signed by Speaker Oleksandr Moroz, public, his deputy chief of staff, Ihor Pukshyn, reiterated at a press briefing on Thursday, according to the President`s press-office.

“Since the President used his right to veto, the only legal consequence of this veto is to annul the previous vote and reconsider the issue in parliament,” he said.

If the law is nevertheless published officially, the President will appeal to the Constitutional Court to pronounce it unconstitutional, he added.

Mr. Pukshyn said it would be a “blatant violation of the Constitution” [to publish the law], urging Ukraine’s law enforcement to follow the situation.
