Lawmakers of the BYUT-Batkivshchyna faction left the session hall of the Verkhovna Rada in order to participate in a sitting of the Supreme Specialized Court of Ukraine on “gas case” against ex Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, before leaving the session hall leader of the BYUT-Batkivshchyna faction Andriy Kozhemyakin said that the faction stopped blocking a work of the parliament because a consideration of cassation appeal takes place today. “We do not trust Ukrainian judicial proceedings any more. We support our leader by our presence at consideration of cassation appeal”, - said A. Kozhemyakin.
