“Last night, Azarov, obviously, called and said that he won’t come to
the parliament to report on the financial and economic situations, as
well as on the situation in the education sphere… Today, for the first
time in the history of parliamentarianism, a sitting was cancelled
because Azarov and his ministers are afraid to tell parliament what is
going on,” Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Mykola Tomenko said on
Friday, Sept. 7.

Earlier, the parliamentary opposition asked the Ukrainian premier to
report on the economic situation in Ukraine at a sitting of the
parliament on Friday.

On September 6, at around 2220, Verkhovna Rada Chairman Volodymyr
Lytvyn proposed to cancel the sitting on September 7, and return to work
in the parliament on September 18. Some 265 of the 299 MPs registered
in the sitting hall supported the proposal.
