The deputies, and some opposition members, say the move is the government’s retaliation for their independent stance in the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s legislature.

The court on Feb. 8 cancelled election results in constituency 11 in Vinnytsia and 71 in Zakarpattya Oblast, Interfax Ukraine agency reported. Deputies Oleksandr Dombrovsky and Pavlo Baloga lost their status in parliament as a result. The resolution cannot be appealed.

Pavlo Baloga, the brother of a former Emergencies Minister Viktor Baloga, quit the pro-presidential Party of Regions faction on Dec. 13. Oleksandr Dombrovskiy has remained non-affiliated after the election. Results in Dombrovskiy’s constituency were disputed after the Oct. 28 vote, but the Central Election Commission ruled to recognize his victory.
