Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine are willing to sell the building belonging to the Ukrainian Cultural Center on Arbat Street in Moscow, guided not only by political, but also financial considerations, the Russian newspaper Izvestia reports, citing several sources from the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko.

It is noted that the bill "On denunciation of the agreement between the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Government of the Russian Federation on the establishment and conditions of the activities of information and cultural centers" has already been registered in the Verkhovna Rada and is being discussed in the relevant committees.
