The Head of Government stated that “the passed in its first reading bill the Government had worked through with Association of Ukrainian cities and with those who are guided by tender legislation”. According to Yulia Tymoshenko, “the Presidential Secretariat has fully encouraged this document, first deputy head of the Presidential Secretariat Oleksandr Shlapak has signed it and during consideration it has been supported by “Our Ukraine-People’s Self-Defense” group. That’s why I can’t understand why this “not nice” political situation around this law emerged,” the Prime Minister announced.
