Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, voted to strip three lawmakers of immunity from prosecution during its evening session on July 11 while outside dozens of activists rallied the parliament building.

The vote followed Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko’s filing on June 21 of motions to prosecute Boryslav Rozenblat from President Petro Poroshenko’s Bloc, Oles Dovhiy from the People’s Will faction, Andriy Lozovy from the Radical Party, and Yevhen Deidei and Maxim Polyakov from the People’s Front faction.

The Rada allowed prosecutors to press criminal charges against Dovhiy, Rozenblat and Polyakov, while two other lawmakers – Deidei and Lozovy – escaped sanction.
