The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, has installed a touch button system in the session hall to fight against piano voting.

The relevant system has been successfully operating in Kyiv City Council for a long time, and it is impossible to bypass it, as reported by the Ukrainian TSN TV news service.

The cameras will allow law enforcement agencies to track the place where the violation is committed. The system will start working this week.

The Verkhovna Rada tried to fight against piano voting back in 2008, but a touch button system installed at that time failed. Other attempts followed to launch the system, but in vain. In 2019, piano voting was announced a criminal offense, but it did not solve the problem either.
