"Everything that was written in our program has turned from promises into real actions," the president said.

Asked whether he was going to disband the parliament, he said: "As long as the Servant of the People Party votes for all the important bills for the country, as long as they [MPs] vote, I will support the party."

As UNIAN reported earlier, bill No. 1182-1-d on inland water transport, which suggests the reform of river transportation in Ukraine, passed its first reading on April 24. The bill aims to transform the Dnipro River into a powerful waterway, introducing efficient river logistics. A total of 243 MPs backed the bill.
